Clubs and Activities
What students learn outside of the classroom is often as meaningful as what they learn inside. What students do, what organizations they join, what activities they participate in, and what sports they play, all determine the overall quality of their Academy experience. The Campus Life Program provides many opportunities for students to engage in activities during the school year. The mission is to create a social and cultural experience on campus which will foster student leadership, community involvement, and personal growth. Each of our programs is intended for active membership and participation; though not required, students are encouraged to be involved in these extracurricular activities as it is an integral part of Academy life.
The Student Government is an organization which promotes student activity, provides a means of student participation within the school, and promotes the general welfare of the school. Membership is open to those students who properly file a petition having the appropriate number of signatures. in addition, two members-at-large are elected from each of the classes.
The Dorm Council is a group of motivated dorm students who contribute their talents and time to improve the Resident Life Program. This group includes members from every dorm or home stay who are open to helping solve any problems in our community. We are a selected group of students that had to go through an interview process to apply. Support comes from our advisors Mrs. Choiniere, Ms. Garey and Mr. Lovett. As the Dorm Council, we plan weekend activities from shopping trips to Burlington or Boston as well as outdoor adventures like white-water rafting, day hikes, or canoeing. Throughout the school year the Dorm Council invites all resident students as well as their day student friends to join our exciting events where we celebrate our community and have lots of fun together. The Dorm Council tries to make the students, both day and dorm, time at St. Johnsbury Academy as exciting as possible….with your support it will even become better!

Welcome to the St. Johnsbury Academy's Chapter of National Honor Society. We hope that in viewing this page you will gain some insight on our unique approach to community service. Here at St. Johnsbury Academy, we believe in leaving this place better than we found it. It was the vision of one student to expand the service that NHS does not only to our school, but to our community, our nation, and our world and leave all those places better then we found them.
