Family Weekend

Thursday through Saturday, October 7 - 9, 2021
We are pleased to announce an in-person Family Weekend! We are all looking forward to seeing you on campus and engaging in interesting conferences and events.  

Parent-Teacher-Student Conference Information

These conferences are one of the most valuable features of the Fall Family Weekend! This year we are offering both Zoom and in-person options.
  • Thursday’s conferences will be conducted through Zoom only.
  • Friday and Saturday conferences will be in-person or through Zoom.
To schedule your conference time:
1. Login to MySchoolApp 
2. Click on "2021 Parent/Teacher Conference Signup"
3. Follow the prompts to set up your Zoom or in-person conferences (you can schedule a mix if that is what you want).

Please Note:

  • We are NOT offering in-person conferences on Thursday. Software limitations will allow you to schedule what appears to be an "in-person conference" on that day. It will actually be a Zoom conference and the teacher will send you a link to attend.

  • If you want a mix of in-person and Zoom meetings you need to change the type of meeting at the top of the page before choosing the time.

  • If you want all in-person conferences then schedule them for Friday and Saturday.
Please send any conference scheduling questions to IT@vermontacademy.org. Other Family Weekend questions can be sent to tfleming@vermontacademy.org.

When signing up for conference times, please confirm with your student that they are available. It is highly recommended that students participate in their conferences.

In addition, our conference signup will close at midnight on Wednesday, October 6. After that time, parents can sign up for conferences when they register on campus, if space is available. If a parent is unable to schedule an appointment, they should contact their student’s advisor and each teacher directly to schedule a Zoom appointment at a mutually agreeable time. 

Vermont Academy Parents Association (VAPA) Auction

And for a bit of fun, and “fun”draising, please visit the Vermont Academy Parents Association (VAPA) auction. There are many great prizes donated by fellow parents and local businesses including travel, skiing, and VA swag. You can visit the site here. The auction opens on October 1 and will close at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, October 8.  Proceeds go to support VAPA and its activities, which include faculty appreciation and support for initiatives that positively impact student life.
