School Description: Founded in 1811, Thornton Academy is one of New England's oldest college preparatory schools. It is an independent, coeducational middle school and high school serving grades 6 through 12. In addition to our day program, we have a boarding program that hosts over 150 students from the United States and more than 20 other countries.

Thornton Academy's mission is "to prepare students for a changing world." Small classes and individual attention allow our faculty to help every student fulfill their potential. Through its extensive course offerings, Thornton provides an opportunity for students to find an academic area that excites them. They are given the opportunity to become dynamic, critical thinkers who excel in college and beyond because of what begins here. Our faculty and staff also recognize that learning extends beyond the classroom to the hallways, the playing fields, and the surrounding community.
