The Campaign for Vermont Academy's Future

Priority #3: Revitalizing Our Campus with Pride

Our community is central to everything we do and makes Vermont Academy a place like no other.

In these unprecedented times of crises, the student experience has become front and center — being able to safely socialize, study together, and lean on each other as family in the face of mounting uncertainty.  

By providing a small and supportive community, our students feel known and are encouraged to grow and discover their voices. Our residential program is an integral part of our students’ lives. Living with peers and dorm parents strengthens the relationships within our community. Our day students also are often found on campus far after the academic day has concluded, visiting friends in their residence halls, studying in the library or chatting in the dining hall.

This campaign will build the foundation for exceptional student experience by renovating students’ homes — their dorms — to provide a safe, accessible, and comfortable environment so students can focus on what’s important — their own individualized education.
