Thetford Academy is a vibrant, independent secondary school serving students in grades 7-12. With more than 100 courses, including options for honors and independent study, college credits through local universities, and technical education at regional technical centers, TA students can chart their own path. Thetford Academy also has an international program admitting 8-10 students from China and other countries each year.

TA students will have experiences that both inspire and prepare them for all the learning they will do, both in school and beyond. Students will learn in active, varied ways that promote good thinking, curiosity, and essential knowledge. “The mind is capable of endless growth,” said Thetford Academy founder Asa Burton, and at TA, the students are encouraged to reach for their highest potential. Thetford Academy provides students with the opportunity and freedom necessary to become independent and engaged learners.
