    Prep Basketball Overview: Old School Fundaments & New School Vision

    Vermont Academy prepares the student-athlete academically, athletically, and socially for the next level. College placement is a top priority for our staff, and the foundation that we provide allows graduates to be productive when they arrive on the college campus of their dreams.
     
    In our work as a coaching staff, it has become increasingly clear that athletes who model basketball as a framework for learning all of life's lessons - both on- and off-court - are more successful as young adults. A holistic approach to sport - one that blends academics, leadership, service, and personal interests - is increasingly favored over a singular, linear path. Our philosophy has helped propel young athletes from high school careers to elite college programs and beyond.

    If the prospect of playing basketball at the highest level, getting an excellent education to prepare you for college, and being welcomed into a diverse community of individuals from around the globe interests you, please call our Office of Admission at 802-869-6229 to arrange a visit to come see Vermont Academy in person.
