Participant Information

Dear Colleague,

We are pleased that you have chosen St. Johnsbury Academy for your studies during the summer of 2017. The staff has planned an interesting and challenging session, and they are ready to help you meet your goals.

Registration:

Institute Registration will take place in the Mayo Center (our library) from 2:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 9th (Session I); Sunday, July 16 (Session II) or Sunday, July 23 (Session III). Late registration is from 6:00 – 8:00 in Streeter Cafeteria. A social hour at 5:00 PM, special buffet at 6:00 PM, and opening general session at 7:00 PM 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.

Final Payment and School Purchase Orders:

 If there is a balance due on your registration, final payments can be made at registration. We accept all major credit cards (Visa, MC, Amex, and Discover). If your school is paying by purchase order, please have your school email the purchase order to Stacie Ruggles at sruggles@stjacademy.org or fax to (802) 751-2127. We understand that some schools may be paying for the workshop during the next fiscal cycle. If so, please have them forward the purchase order after July 1st.

If you are unable to attend, please call to cancel your registration at (802) 748-7708 prior to June 1st; otherwise, you will be required to pay / forfeit your $250.00 cancellation/deposit fee.

Airport Shuttles:

We have tentatively scheduled two shuttle pick ups (11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.) at Burlington International Airport and at the Manchester, NH Airport. Cost is $25 one way. Please email Sarah Laforce at slaforce@stjacademy.org as soon as possible to confirm flight arrival and departure times (or if you would like to use this service). The Burlington airport is a 1.5 hour drive from St. Johnsbury, and the Manchester Airport is about 2.5 hours from St. Johnsbury. The shuttle will take you directly to registration.

Graduate Credit and Continuing Education Units:

As we are co-sponsored by the College Board, we will be awarding Certificates of Program Completion indicating 30-contact hours at the Institute. You must attend ALL sessions to be eligible for a certificate or graduate credit.

Three (3) graduate credits may be earned through Southern NH University ($336). The fee for these credits will be payable to St. Johnsbury Academy upon your arrival. We will have all the forms and information ready for this when you arrive.

Recreational Facilities:

Our Fieldhouse facility will be open throughout the week for swimming, indoor running, tennis, or the use of the exercise equipment. There is no extra charge for the use of the Fieldhouse and pool with the exception of a walk-in charge for special classes in aerobics, aqua aerobics, and judo that are offered on an irregular basis throughout the summer. There will be afternoon and evening activities each day. Again, please see our website for this summer’s afternoon and evening activities.
