Boarding Students

Nestled at one end of Main Street, our campus is home to students from across the country and the world, creating a global community.

Eight dormitories are spread around the Academy campus, four each for boys and girls.  Different in size and personality, each dorm houses faculty advisors, their families, and students. 

Resident students have access to all the facilities on campus and are within walking distance to movie theatres, restaurants, and shops.  For information regarding the town of St. Johnsbury, click here

Reflections from Vatha (Tab) Chaipattanawanich (Class of 2007)

One may ask, “Was it worth traveling across the world to live and learn at St. Johnsbury Academy?”  Yes, the experience at St. Johnsbury Academy is priceless and not exchangeable.  Coming to America, my biggest fear was fitting in with the crowd, but after a few months of living in the dorm at the Academy, I opened myself up and felt right at home. The faculty always related to us on a personal level. They knew each student well, knew all of our traits, and pushed us to develop our strengths. They wanted to see us succeed; they always welcomed us into their homes and treated us as if we were one of their own.

Toward the end of my last year, I was truly living up to my potential. I was involved in Student Council, became a dorm student proctor, volunteered for community services, and was part of the Ultimate varsity team.  At graduation, I received the Headmaster's Award, which is one of the Academy's best awards. To this day, it is one of my proudest accomplishments.

Academically, St. Johnsbury Academy’s selections of courses broadened my area of interests. To that, I felt interested in Math, Physics, and Art.   The Academy allowed me to find a path that is right for me which is engineering. 

Today I would describe myself as independent, a leader, and giving. All these qualities I have gained from my stay at St. Johnsbury Academy. Currently, I am a sophomore at Lehigh University, majoring in mechanical engineer with a design minor. I have been able to work closely with the university production in designing, and able to work at the student office.

Thank you St. Johnsbury Academy for giving me the ability and encouragement to pursue all of my goals.
