Welcome to our Saturday Senior Spotlights for 2021! We will be highlighting a wide variety of Thornton Academy members of the class of 2021 and featuring their accomplishments in the classroom, on the athletic field, in academic competitions, in the arts, and out in the real world. We are so proud of the resilience and dedication of this class in particular and are excited to share their stories. 


Today's spotlight features Megan Montoya from Saco. Megan has embraced the international opportunities that Thornton Academy provides and has helped out with the TA summer camp program for international students, served as a captain of the TA ambassadors club, and been a member of NHS. In the Fall, Megan will be attending the University of Richmond to major in Global Studies.
