Good Neighbor Tuition Program

For Vermont, New Hampshire, and Quebec residents and property owners.

An independent school education requires a significant investment. Our Good Neighbor Tuition Program makes boarding here more affordable for families who live in or have a vacation home in Vermont, New Hampshire, or Quebec.

Our seven-day boarding program gives students the structure, support, and participation that is provided by on campus living. With such close proximity to the school, students’ families can visit for sporting events, dinner, shopping, and other family activities, and students can easily travel home for the weekend.

Our 2020-2021 Good Neighbor tuition of $33,500 is comparable to day school tuition charged by other independent and boarding schools in northern New England. Those families living in sending towns (towns in Vermont and New Hampshire with school choice for grades 9-12) can further reduce the tuition by the amount of the town’s contribution.

With over 240 boarding students,St. Johnsbury Academy is one of the largest boarding schools in Northern New England. We enroll students from 50 communities in Northern Vermont and New Hampshire, many U.S. states, and 28 countries. In addition to small classes (average size of 12) and personal attention, our academic program provides access to 220 courses, including 30 Advanced Placement classes; Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STeM) and technical offerings; four languages; and extensive opportunities in the visual and performing arts. St. Johnsbury Academy is the only school in northern New England to offer the AP Capstone Diploma program. Extracurricular programs feature more than 50 organized clubs and activities, international travel opportunities, and Division I athletics consisting of 48 teams participating in more than 20 different sports. The school is also recognized for its exceptional academic support programs.
