Competition and camaraderie: two hallmarks of Thornton Academy
Athletics are an integral part of the Thornton Academy experience. Our rich and storied history of athletic excellence is the result of more than 130 years of competition and camaraderie—and our athletic traditions run deep. Our athletic teams have won more than 50 state championships, but we value athletics as more than just a way to win trophies. Today we offer more than 50 teams at many different levels, and all students are encouraged to get fit and have fun by joining a team—whether they are new to a sport or a potential New England champion. Many of our coaches also serve as faculty, which allows them to teach and coach through a holistic lens.
