Thetford Academy sponsors a variety of co-curricular activities in addition to its academic curriculum. Student join various clubs including Amnesty International, the Music or Drama Clubs, Student Government, and others to explore personal interests, develop skills and try out new pursuits.

We encourage students to participate in these opportunities to expand their talents, interests, and skills. Students may also propose new activities. All school-sponsored activities have an adult advisor or coach and access to school funding, although many also engage in community fundraising to support their programs.

Skiing and Winter Sports

Our international students have the opportunity to learn how to ski or snowboard or to continue perfecting their slope-side skills. Many Thetford Academy students and families ski regularly during the winter and our international students are provided with rental ski equipment for the season, if desired.

The Dartmouth College Skiway is within view of Thetford Academy to the east, so it is easy and quick to go from the classroom to the ski slopes for late afternoon skiing. The name of our state comes from the French for green mountain. When the mountains are not green, they are white with snow and winter sports are abundant.
