Dear Colleague,


We are pleased that you have chosen St. Johnsbury Academy for your studies during the summer of 2024. Our consultants and staff members have planned a challenging and fun-filled week for you whether you attend online or onsite. We are ready to help you meet your professional development goals.


In Person Schedule, Programming, and Activities

Essential information about the daily schedule, programming, and afternoon and evening activities, as well as a camper’s checklist and directions to our campus can be found on our website. Check out the “Camp St. J” menu for more detailed information. Be sure to check out the links to our afternoon and evening destinations! Please note, there is a modest charge for some of our activities.


In Person Registration Sunday

Institute Registration will take place in the Mayo Center (our library) from 2:00-5:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 7; Sunday, July 14 and Sunday, July 21. 


Late registration is from 6:00-8:00 p.m. in Streeter Cafeteria.


A social hour at 5:00 p.m., special buffet at 6:00 p.m., and opening general session at 7:00 p.m. will complete the evening. There will be a short, initial session of each workshop on Sunday evening.


One of the most productive parts of any workshop is the sharing of ideas that takes place. Please bring copies of syllabi, problems, labs, or exercises for your session to share with fellow participants.

Three (3) graduate credits may be earned through Southern NH University ($375). The fee for these credits will be payable to St. Johnsbury Academy.


Lodging On-Campus

Our dorm rooms are not air-conditioned (except Brantview), so it is highly recommended that you bring a window fan for your comfort (our library and classrooms are air-conditioned). Additionally, you may want to also bring your own pillow and a small desk lamp (all rooms have overhead, LED or florescent lighting). Please note, we DO provide sheets and linens for your stay. Each dormitory has a laundry facility.


Lodging Off-Campus

If a dorm room does fit your needs, there are several local hotels and retail options. The Comfort Inn is a very close to campus and is offering a special discounted rate of $179/night for our guests. Please tell them you are with ‘AP Summer Institute SJ Academy’ when reserving your room. Consider buying a commuter meal plan so that you can enjoy our delicious evening meals!


Other options include The Burke Mountain Hotel and rentals in VRBO or Airbnb
