Vermont Academy at Liceo Europeo Students earn a Vermont Academy diploma upon successful completion of the required credits. Throughout their time at our school, we will help them through the process of applying for schools and helping them find careers and majors that suit their needs.
From the moment they join our close-knit community, we work closely with our students to determine the right balance of academic challenge and extracurricular activity to serve them well on the road ahead.
A good college search and application process requires two bases of knowledge: self-knowledge and a thorough understanding of colleges and universities with programs and people that support and encourage student interests and abilities. We ask our students to examine their academic histories, their strengths and weaknesses, and their development as people. We will help guide them through the process of finding the right school for them.
As our students become more familiar with their own needs, they typically generate excellent questions about colleges, programs, and services available to them after high school. Finding the right college fit is an important journey in self-awareness and one that asks our students to seek direction. At Vermont Academy Liceo Europeo, we are committed to providing them with the expertise, guidelines, and resources to make that process run both smoothly and effectively.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions that you or your child may have.
