History

Steeped in tradition, Vermont Academy was founded in 1876 as a coed boarding and day school, grades 9 - 12 and a postgraduate year. The compact campus is situated in Southern Vermont on 450 beautiful acres. Vermont Academy provides each student with a foundation rich in academics, athletics, performing and visual arts, and global citizenship. The passion and caring of its faculty instill in students a love of learning -- inside the classroom, on the playing fields and stage, and in the world. VA offers 23 robust athletic programs including soccer, lacrosse, crew, mountain biking, ice and field hockey, and basketball to name just a few. Okemo Mountain is home to VA's competitive Sports-on-Snow program.

Considering Financial Aid?

Schools administer their financial aid individually. The keys to seeking financial aid are:

  1. Planning, including dedicating time to sit-down and work through the paperwork and process
  2. Communicating with the admission and financial aid officers at the school
  3. Completing the paperwork and forms early and accurately (forms and paperwork can differ between schools)
  4. Meeting the financial aid deadline (it's early).
