Driving Directions |
Thornton Academy is located at 438 Main Street in Saco, Maine.
From the north or south on the Maine Turnpike, take exit 36 to get on I-195. Go through the toll booth and stay on I-195 about a mile and take the exit marked Route 1 South (the same exit as Saco's Main Street). Drive about half a mile and Thornton Academy will be on the right. There are campus entrances from Route 1 / Main Street and from Fairfield Street, as you can see on the campus map below.
There are marked visitor spots along the main campus driveway in front of the Main Building, Hyde Library, and Garland Auditorium. If these areas are full, feel free to park at the other locations indicated on the campus map at right. Do not park on the grass or in spaces designated for school buses.
Because we are a school, all visitors are required to check in at either the Main Office located in the Main Building or at the Alumni House. Members of the media should contact the Communications Director prior to their arrival by e-mail or by calling 207-602-4448.
