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 made tremendous strides recently toward adopting STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) as a way of life. Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is an exemplar nationally recognized curriculum in STEAM and Glen Meadow now boast a “PLTW Gateway Program.” VTHS has two PLTW programs, offering seven classes between Engineering and Computer Science, Robotics, Coding and STEAM-related initiatives begin as early as PreK and continue throughout a child’s entire VTSD career. Even art and music have adopted STEAM principals with the advent of the Music Production CTE program and Graphic Design CTE program. For more on our efforts to infuse technology, design, and college/ career readiness into our curricular programs, see the CTE link at the bottom of the page.
