Thetford Academy, an independent school with a public mission, is governed by a Board of Trustees. The Board consists of no more than twenty-one members, including an Alumni Representative designated by the Thetford Academy Alumni Association (TAAA), and three Town Representatives from our Partnership towns of Thetford and Strafford, Vermont, and Lyme, New Hampshire.

The Board of Trustees is a self-electing board, with most trustees serving one or more four year terms. The Alumni Representative and Town Representatives (nominated by the designating towns) are elected for one year terms.

Responsibilities of Individual Trustees

Trustees are expected to:

  • Have a strong interest in the welfare of Thetford Academy and become informed about the Academy's mission, policies, organizational structure, services, and finances.
  • Support the mission and policies of Thetford Academy in interactions with the public and the members, and contribute to the best of their abilities financially and through their expertise, time, and services.
  • Attend Board meetings.
  • Serve on at least one Trustee Committee and develop in-depth knowledge of the areas of responsibility of that committee.
