ST. JOHNSBURY -- Headmaster Tom Lovett recently welcomed members of the Academy's faculty and staff at the first of several workshops designed to introduce his vision and goals for the upcoming year, the school's 170th. In his address, attended by nearly every Academy's employee, Lovett focused his opening remarks on three key themes, "Be who you say you are. Put others before yourself. Deliver on your promises." He went on to say that these themes will continue to undergird the building blocks of trust already firmly established at the Academy.

Lovett also praised the work of the Admission Office and the entire Academy community for its success in attracting, recruiting, and retaining an increasing number of students who believe in its mission. Though the final enrollment numbers will not be known for another week or so, fully one third of the student population will be new this year, a testament to the both the Academy's and the vibrant quality of life found in St. Johnsbury and its surrounding towns.
