Summary: Since Vermont Academy is primarily a boarding school, the residential life program is an integral part of our students’ lives. Living with peers, as well as teachers, on a daily basis, strengthens the relationships within our community. Our twelve residences range in size from small houses that accommodate as few as five students to larger halls housing as many as 60 students.
Whether you live in a small dorm or large, all of them offer a safe and comfortable “home-away-from-home” atmosphere that encourages respect, personal responsibility, cooperation and teamwork. Apartments adjoining each hallway house faculty and their families.
Our student proctors, who are elected student leaders, help to maintain a healthy and productive living situation and act as liaisons between the faculty living and working in the dorm and the students. Each dorm comes together as a group on a regular basis to discuss and focus on social issues, healthy lifestyles and effective decision making.
The Dean of Students oversees the residential program, and works closely with all proctors, dorm parents, class deans, the student activities director, and Health and Counseling Services. Together, they seek to support a healthy and rich dorm life for boarding students, helping their experience to be comfortable and as family-style as possible.
