Thank you for your interest in St. Johnsbury Academy and our Good Neighbor program!


Boarding at St. Johnsbury Academy will allow your student to be at school full time during the spring of 2021. Whether you’ve thought about boarding school for a long time, or whether the idea is completely new to you, we’re here to help.


St. Johnsbury Academy has welcomed boarders from Vermont and neighboring states since our founding in 1842—we are an award winning boarding school close to where you live. In recognition of this, we began our Good Neighbor program, a reduced tuition boarding program for students whose families live or own property in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Quebec, about 15 years ago. We have had some fantastic students join us because of this program, and we’d love to talk with you further to see if we might be a good fit for your family in 2021.

Lyme, New Hampshire


I am from a nearby town in New Hampshire which is only about 45 minutes away from the Academy. This allows me to have the unique experience of being a boarding student though I still have the opportunity to go home on some weekends.
