Summer at Thornton Academy

Learning first. Fun second. Friends forever.

Discover new classes and make friends for life at the Summer at Thornton Academy program. Held on Thornton Academy's beautiful campus, the program features two blocks of classes in the mornings and two activities per day in the afternoons and evenings. 

Summer at Thornton Academy is designed for both day and boarding students and features classes in arts, STEM, humanities, and English Language Learning, and more! The program is open to students ages 12 - 17. 

Afternoon and evening activities encourage students to discover American culture, have fun, and explore topics from the morning classes. One day, we might visit an art museum. The next, we learn about lobstering as we go out in a lobster boat in Casco Bay.

It was an absolute pleasure being a part of the summer camp this year! To witness the bonds form between these students through the shared experiences of the program was truly something special.
