We are closer than you think.

Our day students come from over 50 towns across Maine and New Hampshire. Each year, we work with our families to determine transportation routes with stops that are convenient and safe.

For the Fall 2022 semester, we will offer a Northern route with stops in Portland and Scarborough to serve students living in the towns of Brunswick, Falmouth, Portland, South Portland, Scarborough, Cape Elizabeth, and more.

We will also be offering a Southern route with stops in Kennebunk and Wells to serve students in Kennebunk, Kennebunkport, Wells, Ogunquit, York, and Berwick.
Families can choose roundtrip or one-way (morning or afternoon) transportation.

Additionally, for families for whom these routes are not convenient, we will facilitate options sharing of contact information to arrange for carpooling with other Thornton Academy families who live in your area. 
Please contact the Admissions office at or 207-282-5383 if you have questions about these transportation routes.
