Welcome to the Academy.

Don't just dream, dream big!

St. Johnsbury Academy is about dreaming bigger, learning smarter, playing harder, and cheering louder. Our goal is to help you become the best student and the best person you can be.

Founded in 1842, St. Johnsbury Academy is a comprehensive independent secondary school widely recognized as an institution that develops character, academic excellence, and civic responsibility in its students.

We have an uncompromising optimism regarding the potential of each person, embracing their dreams and providing every reasonable opportunity to do so. Our unique culture fosters a tradition of respect for all members of our community, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, cultural background, or family economic resources.

“St. Johnsbury Academy treasures the spirit of young people—their energy, their creativity, their compassion, and generosity—as well as the unique spirit of each student, believing in them even when they don’t believe in themselves.” —Headmaster, Thomas Lovett

Our Three Promises

We will do all we can to help each student
be the best person possible.

We are committed to the values of respect, compassion, integrity, and responsibility. We dress with respect for ourselves, for others, and the work that we do. We have compassion and empathy and we believe in loving those most who need it most. 

We will do all we can to help each student
be the best learner possible.

We value expertise and creativity. We provide the supports and opportunities for students to pursue their passion and develop a love for learning. 

We will do all we can to help each student
become part of something bigger than him/herself.

When students come to St. Johnsbury Academy, they become part of the most talented and diverse group of individuals they may ever know as friends and colleagues. They develop an intellectual and emotional connection to making this community a better place.
