Thornton Academy Students Accepted into the University of Maine's College of Engineering With Sophomore Status Through First-In-The-State Partnership
Thornton Academy seniors Caleb Bailey and Ben Leary have been accepted into The University of Maine's College of Engineering with sophomore status through a first-in-the-state partnership forged to create a pipeline of Maine residents entering the engineering sector. Both students are completing a rigorous curriculum that has included Advanced Placement (AP) courses in chemistry, physics, computer science, calculus, foreign language, the humanities, history/social science, and English, as well as an Honors Introduction of Engineering course. First announced in 2013, this unique articulation agreement allows the students to complete 30 college credits, bypassing freshman year—an estimated savings of at least $24,000.
The 2016 Thornton Academy Yearbook (Tripod) was awarded the First Place, All-New England Journalism Award as the best Yearbook by a school with an enrollment over 1,000 students (Class I) at the New England Scholastic Press Association Conference.
