Last spring, Vermont Academy’s Director of Place-Based Learning and Environmental Studies, Ms. Christine Armiger was invited by Putney Pre-College Programs to help direct their inaugural youth summer program on climate and public health. The program was created in partnership with the Center for Climate, Health, and the Global Environment at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health. After accepting this position, Christine immediately knew this would present a wonderful opportunity for Vermont Academy students.
Alumni, students, families, and the greater Vermont Academy community are invited to join us on Zoom for a fascinating journey of discovery as we hear from four alumni about their individual paths to entrepreneurship.
Vermont Academy invites alumni, parents, faculty, staff, and friends to join our new Vermont Academy Community Strava Club. This club allows members to track their exercise using the free Strava App. This means you can easily track and share your next run, walk, hike, bike ride, swim, etc. with fellow members of the VA Strava club. Strava also provides an easy and fun way to congratulate fellow club members on recent activities!
The 2021 Fall Family Weekend at Vermont Academy was blessed with abundant sunshine and beautiful foliage as more than 130 family members enjoyed quality time with their students while participating in parent-teacher-student conferences and special workshops, or cheering students on at soccer games and Cabaret. The workshop on Paying for College Without Sacrificing Your Retirement offered by Timothy P. Higgins, CFP®, ChFC®, was one of the most well-attended activities of the weekend and may be offered to alumni at a future date.
Vermont Academy students and staff joined together at the Nita Choukas Theater on Friday, October 8 to entertain families and students. The Fall Cabaret has become a favorite part of Fall Family Weekend, and this year’s performances were exceptional. Photos can be found on Flickr.
