Welcome to St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju


St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju is a NEASC accredited PreK-12 day and boarding school on the beautiful island of Jeju, South Korea. We have developed a school that mirrors the values and ethos of our home school St. Johnsbury Academy Vermont, with its 180-year history of academic excellence and character building. Character, Inquiry, and Community are the guiding principles of our educational program and are infused in everything we do.

Academically, our approach is to provide each student with a holistic student-centered educational experience through inquiry-based learning; while preparing our students with the skills to be successful global citizens. Student-centered learning emphasizes the learner's critical role in constructing meaning from new information and prior experience. We scaffold student success through the use of collaborative inquiry-based learning where students work on and solve real-world problems. This approach culminates in our unique Capstone Intensive Learning Model in grades 5, 8, and 12. This academic framework is embedded in our curriculum and is a core tenet of our approach to teaching and learning. We also support our students to become well-rounded members of society through character education and community engagement.

St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju is a leader in learning innovation. We have built a school that values and supports students' paths to success from PreK-12. We believe that every student can be successful, and we are driven to help each student be successful. St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju is a place where anything is possible, and a place that molds and forges the leaders of tomorrow. 

Thank you for considering St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about our school. 

All the best, 

Mr. Corey Johnson
