Head of School Message

Welcome to our website!

It is my pleasure to welcome you to St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju, the newest addition to the Global Education City. As its first Head of School I am honored at the opportunity to work with a world-class faculty in a state-of-the-art facility.

Our goal is to fuse academics with real-world applications. To this end, our educators have designed innovative curricula that focus on inquiry/project-based learning. We'll engage students by offering a unique Capstone Intensive Learning Model that provides numerous opportunities for students to research and present projects that are personally meaningful. Through this we hope to encourage each student to discover his or her passion in life.

In addition, we are delighted to be located on Korea’s beautiful island of Jeju and proud of our connection to our home school in Vermont. Founded in 1842, St. Johnsbury Academy is a respected independent secondary school widely recognized as an institution that develops character, academic excellence, and civic awareness in its students.

For over 170 years, our home school has fostered a sense of community that has allowed all its students the opportunity to recognize the interconnectedness of their studies and its influence on the local and global communities.

St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju hopes to construct a similar story of achievement by emphasizing the mission statement of our home school: Character, Inquiry, Community. Our entire school community will be committed to the values of respect, compassion, humility, and integrity.

Students will progress to their future colleges and universities ready to pursue their passions with a deep love of learning - prepared to be principled leaders who make a difference in their communities, countries, and the world.

Thank you for visiting our website. I am truly enthused by the opportunities before us this year and in the future. Please accept my personal invitation to join us as we prepare our students for success.
