We challenge our students to challenge themselves with advanced academic offerings.
Our goal at Thornton Academy is to help our students become who they want to be. For some, they envision successful futures filled with degrees from top universities. Thornton Academy offers 40+ honors classes and 26 AP classes to help these students achieve their goals of being admitted to a highly ranked college and becoming a leader in their field of choice.
What sets Thornton Academy's advanced academics classes apart?
- Dual enrollment opportunities. Some of our advanced classes allow students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Ask your teacher for more details.
- Experienced faculty. Our teachers are leaders in their fields. They continually refresh both their academic knowledge and teaching skills.
- Integrated technology. All of our teachers are highly trained in using tech effectively. Classrooms are outfitted with modern technology like advanced cameras, projectors, VR goggles, and more.
- Students that care about learning. By choosing an honors or AP level class, you are committing to a high level of study. Surround yourself with peers that are serious about their studies.
My AP classes relate directly to the real world and embody the spirit of interconnectedness. Learning advanced writing and reading skills transcends the focus on just 'taking the test'.
