From Our Community

Dasha got all the classes she dreamt of: photography, French, and Honors English. We visited so many schools around the world, and the atmosphere at Thornton Academy was at its highest - warm and professional. We are so happy to have made the right choice. I spoke to all of the international parents, and they share the same opinion.

Thornton Academy represents home for me. A second family that I am able to live with all school year thanks to the homestay program and friendships I am grateful beyond words for. Thornton has helped me grow and mature as well as helped me explore my boundaries; the faculty showed me how I can push myself academically and athletically.

Thornton Academy has changed my whole view on education. It has helped me find my talents in academics. The diversity Thornton has to offer is such an amazing experience. Thanks to this school, I now have friends from all over the world and enjoy learning!

The way to make Thornton Academy your home is to let yourself be vulnerable and tell your story. There is someone who will listen and share theirs with you.

Coming to Thornton Academy, I never felt alone. When I go home, I remember friends, memories, and the experiences from school.
