Applying as a Day Student

Admission Philosophy

St. Johnsbury Academy honors a long-standing voucher system providing area students with educational choice allowing the Academy to enroll the majority of students from the St. Johnsbury area while maintaining its own independence. For more than a century and a half, this commitment has remained at the very heart of St. Johnsbury Academy’s educational philosophy. Employing authentic and traditional methodologies, the school remains committed to personally relevant instruction and the education of all students.
