Welcome to Johnson!
Johnson is a campus shaped by the rural beauty of Vermont. From its hilltop setting, mountain peaks form the backdrop for every activity, and numerous programs engage students in the study and preservation of the natural world. The scenery fuels our creativity, inspiring a thriving arts community. We also have our practical side, launching entrepreneurs, counselors, and teachers into careers of community impact.
