Registration Forms and Information

We are excited that you are joining our Vermont Academy community this fall! We will need you to fill out important forms to complete your enrollment process for the 2021-22 school year throughout the summer. Some of these forms are standard health forms, class registration forms, and a roommate questionnaire. Not all forms will be available simultaneously, as they will be posted at different points throughout the summer. Please be sure to check back weekly to ensure you aren’t missing anything. We will also send you plenty of reminders once forms become available(note that health forms will not be available until the current school year ends, and class registration will not be available until July 1st).
 
We need you to login into your SchoolAdmin enrollment portal to complete these enrollment forms.

If you have any questions, please contact our Admissions Office at (802) 869-6229 or admissions@vermontacademy.org.
