Athletics are an important part of daily life at St. Johnsbury Academy. A large number of our students participate in at least one sport each year and many are three-season athletes. Eligible varsity sports are played at the Division I level, pairing our teams against the most competitive opponents in the state.


Athletic Code

Statement of Philosophy

Our interscholastic athletic program is an extension of our academic program; we view participation in interscholastic athletics as an honor and privilege and we demand commitment and a strong work ethic. Therefore, our student athletes should expect that their involvement in athletics to be an intense educational experience. We recognize that excellence is not easily developed, but we believe that with encouragement, support, hard work, and motivation our student athletes will succeed, not only in competition, but also in life. All student athletes should recognize that involvement in interscholastic athletics, as in life, is a competitive atmosphere, where some excel, and all will benefit by being a member of a team. Student athletes should be able to say they are proud to be a part of St. Johnsbury Academy athletics.




To promote good sportsmanship and ethical conduct by modeling and fostering responsible decision-making, honesty, and respect for self, team, coaches, and opponents.



To provide the enthusiasm and energy to engage athletes in the pursuit of specific knowledge and skills of the sport; to set high but reasonable goals and to know and appreciate their individual talents and unique abilities.



To encourage each individual athlete to understand his or her relationships, rights, and responsibilities within a team that is itself part of the larger community.
