Meet the Director of Athletics and ASAs

It is with great pleasure and excitement that I extend a warm welcome to each and every one of you to St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju. As the Athletic and After-School Activities Director, I am privileged to be a part of a community that values character, inquiry, and community as the fundamental principles of our educational journey.

At St. Johnsbury Academy Jeju, we believe that character development is essential for the holistic growth of our students. We strive to cultivate qualities such as integrity, resilience, empathy, and teamwork, which will not only serve our students well on the athletic field or in co-curricular activities but also in their personal and professional lives. We are committed to instilling in our students the importance of fair play, sportsmanship, and ethical behavior, fostering a culture of respect and integrity in all aspects of their lives.

Inquiry is at the heart of our educational philosophy. We encourage our students to be curious, to question, and to explore. Through our athletic and co-curricular programs, we provide opportunities for students to engage in experiential learning, push their boundaries, and discover their passions. We believe that by embracing a spirit of inquiry, our students will develop critical thinking skills, creativity, and a lifelong love for learning.

Central to our school's identity is our strong sense of community. We are a close-knit family that celebrates diversity, embraces inclusivity, and fosters meaningful connections. Our athletic and co-curricular activities provide a platform for students from various backgrounds to come together, collaborate, and forge lifelong friendships. We are committed to creating an environment where every individual feels valued, supported, and empowered to thrive.

As the Athletic and After-School Activities Director, my utmost priority is to ensure that our students have access to a wide range of athletic and extracurricular opportunities that cater to their interests and talents. I am dedicated to fostering a safe, inclusive, and engaging environment that promotes personal growth, teamwork, and the pursuit of excellence.

I invite you to join us on this remarkable journey as we nurture our students to become well-rounded individuals who embody the principles of character, inquiry, and community. Together, let us create a legacy of success, sportsmanship, and a lifelong passion for learning.
