Bicentennial Events

Over the course of the 2018-2019 school year, Thetford Academy will celebrate our 200th birthday with a series of Bicentennial Events. This milestone is about community: our faculty, staff, students, families, alumni, friends, and neighbors of the last 200 years who have supported us every step of the way. We hope you will join us in celebrating 200 years of Thetford Academy.
