Vernon Township School District offers 30 varsity sports encompassing 49 levels. Vernon competes in the Northwest Jersey Athletic Conference (NJAC) and the Hunterdon Warren Sussex League (HWS) along with sport specific leagues in ice hockey, skiing, in-door track and field, volleyball and lacrosse. The ideal of sportsmanship permeates every aspect of our culture. The ethic of fair play and respect of an opponent is fundamental. Athletics as we know it are a training ground for good citizenship and high behavioral standards. Vernon Township High School, the N.J.A.C. and the N.J.S.I.A.A. are all committed to fair play, graciousness toward an opponent, and a genuine concern and respect for others.
Our Departments have been paving the way for the District in adopting STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) as a way of life. Our Engineering program, Project Lead the Way (PLTW) has expanded to three H.S. course offerings in 2015-2016 and will also begin offerings at the 7th and 8th grade level. We now offer Robotics as a club in both Middle Schools and the High School, serving grades 5-12. All of our courses have been infused with technology and design with a focus on college & career readiness. Some examples include courses like Fashion Design, Web Design, and Computer Graphics. Vernon recently even incorporated a state of the art Music Production/Engineering room at VTHS complete with ProTools, Logic, and everything you need to write, arrange, and produce music.
