Success in college today demands strong organizational and study skills and an understanding of independent learning. Vermont Academy’s emphasis on structure and the application of sound study habits lays the foundation for academic achievement. Our low student-to-faculty ratio places students in an environment where everyone is “in the front row”. Extracurricular programs afford each student a chance to participate meaningfully in areas ranging from equestrian and school musicals to basketball and rock climbing. The campus is situated on 500 acres in the foothills of the Green Mountains.
