Headmaster’s Newsletter

Known. Grown. Inspired.


We believe every student has the potential to do great things, and that each has unique gifts and talents. By helping each student recognize and use these gifts, our teachers help students achieve their own brands of excellence, transforming their own lives and the world around them.


Students at St. Johnsbury Academy benefit from small classes, talented teachers, and a huge array of academic opportunities.


We offer over 220 courses to choose from, including 31 Advanced Placement courses, 40 courses in the fine and performing arts, college-level engineering, five languages, and an award-winning technical education department.


When students come to chapel each morning, they are welcomed by faculty who are some of the best teachers in New England. Our teachers teach classes on Advanced Placement courses at our summer AP Institute, grade Advanced Placement exams, and have written Advanced Placement course guides. They are published authors, medical doctors and PHDs. Nearly 70 percent of our faculty hold advanced degrees from such institutions as Brown, Dartmouth, Middlebury, Harvard, UPenn, and Johns Hopkins. Each of our art faculty is a professional artist in the genre they teach.
