Head of School Message

Welcome to St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju!


Located on Korea’s beautiful island of Jeju, we continue to exemplify our home school in Vermont. Founded in 1842, St. Johnsbury Academy fosters integrity, academic excellence, and civic awareness in the education and development of our students. We follow the same pillars honored by our home school: Character, Inquiry, and Community.

To provide the most well-rounded, enriching environment for our students, we prioritize the combination of in-school learning with real-world application. Our highly qualified educators create curricula inspired by Inquiry and Project-Based Learning for a more dynamic, active learning experience in a caring learning environment. We also offer a unique Capstone Intensive Learning Model (CILM) in grades 5, 8, and 12. The CILM gives students a chance to research and present personally meaningful projects, encouraging them to discover and pursue their passion in life.

We equip our students with a deep love of learning as they prepare to enter higher education. Ultimately, their time at St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju provides them with the tools and relationships they need to make a difference in their communities today and the world forever.

I am thrilled to welcome a new generation of leaders, creators, and innovators this year and for years to come. Thank you for your interest in St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju!

Please do not hesitate to contact us or visit our beautiful campus to learn more about our dynamic learning community.
