Incredible academics. You choose from 200+ courses in 8 academic departments. Want to study Psychology, AP Environmental Science, Arabic, play the cello in our orchestra, and be a part of our dance company? At Thornton Academy, you can do it all!
A beautiful campus. Thornton Academy's campus is large, green, safe, and close to it all. We are located only 90 minutes from Boston, 5 minutes from the beach, and an easy walk from shops, restaurants, and cafés. No wonder our students consider Thornton Academy to be their second home!
Teachers who truly care about their students. Our teachers are more than teachers - they are mentors, friends, supporters, and cheerleaders to our students. Teaching at Thornton Academy is a passion and a career - most of our teachers have over 20 years experience.

With 10 outdoor fields, a historic indoor gymnasium, a running/walking trail on campus, and over 100 years of athletic experience, Thornton Academy ranks in the top 1% of U.S. high schools for athletics.
