Brattleboro Union High School and the Windham Regional Career Center offer two content-based academies to BUHS students.


The Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Academy is designed to allow students to explore extended studies in the area of Engineering or Biomedical Studies.


The Fine, Performing and Visual Arts (FVPA) Academy is designed to provide students extended academic and studio experiences in digital communication, performing arts, fine arts, dance/circus or musical arts.

Participants in the STEM and FVPA Academies require a combination of required and elective coursework, a student portfolio, professional interaction within the chosen field and a capstone course. Successful completion of a STEM or FVPA program will result in a notation on a student’s transcript and high school diploma.

*These academies are open to students graduating in 2017 and later. An application and interview are required for acceptance to both academies.
