The Thornton Academy English Language Summer Program is a great way to improve both spoken and written English skills. During the program, we'll also explore the gorgeous coast of Maine and make friends from all over the world. Designed for incoming Thornton Academy students, as well as for students that stay only for the summer, classes are small and provide instruction appropriate for each student's English ability.
Experienced, qualified Thornton Academy teachers instruct classes that range in size from four to eight students. Classes focus on reading and listening comprehension and seek to improve the quality of communication.
Enrichment activities in the afternoons and evenings support classroom learning and also provide relaxation and fun. Weekend excursions include trips to Boston and to Maine's famous Acadia National Park and scenic whitewater rafting rivers.
