St. Johnsbury Academy History

St. Johnsbury Academy got its start in 1842 thanks to Erastus, Thaddeus, and Joseph Fairbanks. Their goal was a simple one: to provide intellectual, moral, and religious training for their own children and the children of the community. Thirty-one years later, the school was reincorporated to provide a top-notch education to a broader range of students, as opposed to just those who were seeking to attend liberal arts institutions of higher learning. By offering a combination of technical training and college preparatory studies, the founders of St. Johnsbury created one of the most unique academies in all of New England.

St. Johnsbury Academy Alumni Awards

Each year during the reunion banquet, two alumni awards are given out: the Dwayne B. Sherrer Alumni Distinguished Service Award and the Northeast Kingdom Service Award. To be nominated for the Dwayne B. Sherrer Alumni Distinguished Service Award, candidates must have exhibited distinguished, loyal service to the Alumni Association, its ideals and objectives along with service to their community, state, or nation, and/or achievement in their own field of endeavor. Candidates for the Northeast Kingdom Service Award are expected to have greatly contributed to the continued improvement of the Northeast Kingdom.
