Vermont International Academy will provide US college preparatory education with holistic, well-rounded, skills-based student development.
VIA's curriculum emphasizes skills over content, addressing the pedagogic shift away from a traditional, teacher-centered model of high school education. We transition students away from the Chinese educational model towards innovative American educational models, as our students aim to matriculate into US baccalaureate institutions. Teachers rely heavily on group work, independent research projects and student-centered learning methods. We aim to cultivate independent students who take ownership of their own learning.
