St. Johnsbury Academy to expand to Korea

Posted: Updated:

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - The private Vermont high school that educates students in the St. Johnsbury area is planning to open a campus in South Korea.

St. Johnsbury Academy officials say the school was the first American school chosen to operate at the Jeju Global Education City, which is scheduled to open in the fall of 2015.

The education city is being built on an island off the southern coast of South Korea. The education city was established by the Korean government to help meet an increasing demand in that country for overseas studies and language training.

St. Johnsbury Academy was selected from schools from throughout the U.S.

Academy Headmaster Tom Lovett says he confident the school's comprehensive curriculum and personalized approach to instruction will make it a success in South Korea.
