Time to Recommit

This fall we asked the St. Johnsbury Academy community to commit to taking a few basic measures in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Because we remain dedicated to our mission—to help each student become the best person, the best learner, and the best community member they can be—we want more than anything to have our students here on campus as much as possible to work with teachers, connect with each other, and be part of a strong community. We’ve known from the start that our success this school year would depend on our collective willingness to work together and be smart.

Thank you to everyone in the community who supported this year's food drive. Despite not holding our annual Walk for Hunger or special Dress-Down Days, our halls and advisory rooms are filled with food items that will be delivered this week to area food shelfs.
