High School Principal Message


Welcome to the St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju high school. The high school department serves students in grades 9 to 12 and parallels our home school St. Johnsbury Academy in Vermont, which has a rich 178-year history of academic excellence and character building. Our purpose at St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju is to create a comprehensive educational community committed to student academic achievement and build on a foundation of character building, inquiry-based learning, and a commitment to the community. 

St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju provides each student with a holistic, comprehensive educational experience. Character, Inquiry, and Community are the guiding principles of our educational program and infused in everything we do. Highlights of our high school program include our cumulative senior capstone program, inquiry/project-based learning, Advanced Placement courses, morning assembly, student advisory, conference periods, and a semester-based academic calendar with block classes. 

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. We also support our students to become well-rounded members of society through character education and community engagement. 

Our highly qualified faculty come from all over the world and provide our students with a multicultural global perspective. Our small class sizes and advisory periods allow our teachers to provide more one on one support while building a strong community for our students as they progress through high school.

As the High School principal, I am privileged and honored to be a part of the St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju community. During the upcoming school year, we will continue to provide the best quality education for every student; so that every student can reach their highest potential. 

Please feel free to explore our website and learn more about our school.

All the best, 

Mr. Corey L. Johnson
High School Principal
