List of the Smallest Colleges in Vermont

Some students in Vermont will perform much better in a smaller institution. These students may prefer the one-on-one attention they can get from their professors, or the luxury of being able to see similar faces on the regular to make new friends easily. Small colleges in the state have great academic advisors who work hard to help students create individual majors unique to their talents, career goals, and interests. If these advantages sound good to you, we suggest looking through our list of Vermont's smallest colleges below to start narrowing down your options!
