The 6-12 Experience
Two schools: one unified educational journey.
While there are many entry points for students to begin at Thornton Academy, one thing is consistent: we provide an educational experience filled with opportunities to be who you are and become who you want to be.
Thornton Academy offers a breadth of program that unmatched by both schools. We do so to serve all of our students - we meet them where they are and provide appropriate challenges and supports to meet the needs of all learners. Our teachers care for all of our students, no matter where they come from and no matter who they are. They rely on our core values of respect, responsibility, compassion, and investment to help shape our students into successful, happy, and fulfilled young adults.
Both the middle school and upper school staff are extremely responsive. I feel well-informed and both myself and my children are so supported by Thornton Academy's teachers.
