TA is recognized for its emphasis on hands-on, experiential, place-based learning through community service, the arts, and outdoor education. With more than 100 courses, TA’s curriculum is organized into four academic areas: Arts, Humanities, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), and Experiential Learning. Career and technical programs are available through affiliation with regional centers. Independent learning is possible in any field; students are encouraged to pursue self-directed study. Support is also available, including library and study resources, counseling, and special education services through the Learning Center.

Thetford Academy teaches students to think critically and creatively, to problem-solve and innovate, and to approach the world with both curiosity and compassion.
