Meet Ben '23
Hello! My Name is Ben Moore and I have attended Thornton Academy since freshman year and it has been quite a ride, to say the least. For the first two years of my high school career, I, and my other TA classmates dealt with the COVID pandemic. Despite these challenges, TA has offered me a vast amount of opportunities. I could not be more grateful for this. I have gotten to explore my wide range of interests such as technical theater, fishing, Model United Nations, Library Board, and many others.
The teachers and staff who run these activities and great classes have also been a great part of my journey at Thornton Academy. Daily, they demonstrate care for all their students, trust in the educational process, and expertise in their field. The friends I have made have also been a major part of my journey here at TA.
In addition to the great community, Thornton Academy offers a wide range of classes for anyone at any skill level. Personally, I have had the chance to pursue an independent study, take AP Human Geography, as well as many other great, difficult, and meaningful classes.
It’s because of all those great factors that I will be able to look back at my high school days with a smile and pride. If you are looking for a place to apply yourself and reach for greatness in a supportive environment then Thornton Academy is the place for you.
