St. Johnsbury Academy students quickly discover that they are learning and socializing in an incredibly diverse environment where respect, inquiry, and high expectations are core values extending throughout school life, both inside and outside the classroom. For students, respect extends not only to classmates, but also to faculty, staff, school property, our campus learning environment, and the community at-large.
We firmly believe that invaluable lessons in character development can also be learned outside the classroom through the social interaction of students with peers from a wide variety of cultures, backgrounds, and interests. The Academy offers the opportunity to participate in more than 60 clubs and activities, ranging from purely recreational to community service-oriented, as well as more than 30 interscholastic sports and an all-seasons intramural program.

Late Openings and Snow Days
St. Johnsbury Academy calls off school only in very unusual conditions. Occasionally, on mornings when the weather is bad, the Academy may open late. We use the eNotify Alert system to inform all parents and students of closings and late openings via either text or email. Closings and late openings will be broadcast on or before 7:00 a.m. on radio stations WSTJ (1340AM) St. Johnsbury, WDEV (550AM/ 96.1FM) Waterbury, WGMT (97.7FM) Lyndonville, WMOO (92.1FM) Derby, WWLR (Lyndon State College), on television Channel 8, WCAX, and on the Academy website.
On days when many area schools have closed and driving may be unusually hazardous in rural areas, students and their parents are left with the decision of whether or not to attend, or whether or not to arrive late. On such days, absences excused by parents will be considered excused absences by the school. If it is unsafe to attempt to get to school from your home, you should wait until road conditions improve.
At this time, memberships are not available to public patrons. If you are a current member, please contact the Field House to have your membership balance to applied to RecFit. As state guidelines change, we will be in touch with members regarding availability of Field House facilities.

St. Johnsbury Academy uses a wide variety of technology and platforms to support learning. On campus, we have over 225 mobile laptop devices and 100 fixed computers that support our diverse academic programming. These devices are a mixture of Windows and Mac-based operating systems. Additionally, each student has the opportunity to participate in our electronic device program in which we currently offer Chromebooks. Students may also bring their own laptop device since our curriculum is predominantly web-based. Each student has a school-provided STJLABS (Google) email account that is used as a communication tool with teachers and also serves as the login account for their Chromebooks. Students will become fluent in the use of the Google platform and the Microsoft Office automation suite in addition to several web-based learning management systems and Apps that will be integral during their time at the Academy.
