Middle School Boarding

Attention and care like our boarding students are our own children.  

Thornton Academy offers a boarding program for students grades 6-12. Families are able to choose from both dormitory and homestay accommodations and be assured that both options offer the care and support that Thornton Academy's boarding program is known for. 

We recognize that sending your child to boarding school requires tremendous confidence. We take our families' trust very seriously and do our utmost to ensure that all of our boarding students, particularly our middle school boarders, are happy, safe, and supported. 

TAMS is unique in so many ways. But one of the ways that we're most unique is that we're a small, close-knit community. We get to know each individual student and we're able to provide academic, emotional, and social support for a variety of learners.
