Virtual Admissions Office

Welcome to St. Johnsbury Academy! We created this page as a way for you to connect with our Admissions Office until we are able to meet you in person.


Take some time to explore the resources here, and feel free to contact us with any questions you have about becoming part of our learning community.


To help you understand the SJA experience, we’ve put together several resources in order to offer you as much information as possible until we are able to meet. If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.


We look forward to hearing from you!
