TA Ambassadors

Thetford Academy is a vibrant, independent secondary school serving students in grades 7-12. TA offers enriched educational opportunities for our students who are college bound and also for those who are technicaly oriented.

In keeping with our mission as a community school, Thetford Academy maintains an open admission policy for area residents and seeks to admit a wide range of students from local communities. The Academy maintains Partnership Agreements with three towns: Thetford, VT; Strafford, VT; and Lyme, NH. Students from these towns are guaranteed admission in the following grades:

Thetford Grades 7-12
Strafford Grades 9-12
Lyme Grades 9-12

Thetford Academy also accepts students from other towns by application. In the 2014-2015 school year we enrolled students from Waits River District, Hartland, Washington, Sharon, Tunbridge, Brownsville, Norwich, and Orange in Vermont and Hanover and Orford, NH. In addition, we host students through our International Program; this year we currently have seven students from China in grades 9-12.

During the 2014-15 school year, we will host an open house event to introduce Thetford Academy to prospective students and families. This event, entitled "Meet TA: Discover Your Future," will be offered on Oct. 15, 2014. The evening will include panel discussions with faculty, current students, and parents; and tours of the campus will be offered by our team of Student Ambassadors.

From October 2014 to April 2015, prospective students will have the opportunity to spend a day at TA as "Shadow Students." They will follow the schedule of one or more of our Student Ambassadors and experience first-hand life at Thetford Academy.
