Thank you for your interest in St. Johnsbury Academy!


St. Johnsbury Academy is opening for student orientation on August 31 and classes begin September 8. We hope to make the most of this exceptional fall semester, especially for our boarding families. 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 spent recent weeks developing thoughtful, responsible, and balanced plans for opening for the 2020-2021 school year in accord with the Vermont Department of Health and Agency of Education Guidance for A Strong and Healthy Start, CDC guidelines, other official and expert advice, and the good thinking that is happening across the world. We look forward to welcoming students back to campus the start the school year, and while they’re here, to offer them the best possible SJA experience while keeping them safe and protecting our communities.

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.
