English first. Fun second. Friends forever.
Improve your English, experience American culture, develop your independence, and make friends for life at the Thornton Academy English Language Learners Camp. Held on Thornton Academy's beautiful campus, the ELL program features classes in the mornings and two activities per day in the afternoons and evenings.
All classes are taught by experienced Thornton Academy teachers. Develop your English Language skills in Communication class. Explore the ocean and marine ecology in STEM class. Learn how to research, create independent thoughts, and write a quality thesis statement in Introduction to Research class.
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.
