Join us for the 5th Annual Academic Expo on February 1st, which includes (for the very first time) an Admissions Open House for prospective students, and an exciting Career Expo featuring employers from throughout Maine!
The Academic Expo and Admissions Open House will run from 2-7 PM; the Career Expo will be held from 4-7 PM. All events will take place in Linnell Gym and prospective students will have the opportunity to tour our beautiful campus.
Current students & parents: February 1st is an Early Release Day and students will be dismissed at 11 AM. No appointment is necessary for the Expo—please visit whenever is most convenient for you! Come meet teachers, learn about courses, ask questions about special academic programs, and chart your career and/or college-preparation path. Program of Studies booklets will be distributed to students during school prior to the Expo and students should bring them to the event. Representatives from the University of Maine, the University of New England, Biddeford Regional Center of Technology, and Jobs For Maine Graduates will be present to share insight into their partnerships with Thornton.
During the Career Expo from 4-7 PM, students interested in learning about future employment opportunities can meet one-on-one with a variety of employers, including L.L. Bean, WCSH6, YMCA, Hannaford, and many more!
Prospective students & parents: Looking for a change? We’re closer than you think! Just 20 minutes from Portland, our diverse school welcomes day students from throughout Maine as well as residential students from 35 countries around the globe. Our Open House on February 1st will provide you with the opportunity to meet with our Admissions team, chat with teachers, get the “inside scoop” from current students, and envision yourself enrolling as a Thornton Academy Golden Trojan!
