CVHSI Opening September 3rd

The Central Vermont High School Initiative is ready to open its doors on September 3rd, having just received approval from the State of Vermont as a Recognized Independent School!

We are thrilled to be receiving both 9th and 10th graders at our school building on the campus of Goddard College in Plainfield Vermont. The commuter bus between St. Johnsbury and Montpelier stops at the parking lot of Goddard, extending the potential for students from the entire region to experience this wonderful high school opportunity.

A brilliant array of teachers is currently meeting individually with students and their families, preparing the Stokes Building, and finalizing the course of study for the coming year. Members of the Board and staff continue to document and form the organizational container for the school, from receiving recognized school status with the State of Vermont, to pursuing developing school status with the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America, and applying for non-profit status.

The Central Vermont High School Initiative turns no student away for financial reasons. We welcome you to visit with our teachers and learn more about this distinctive opportunity for adolescents in Central Vermont.
