Summer at Thornton Academy
Learning first. Fun second. Friends forever.
Improve your English, experience American culture, develop your independence, and make friends for life at the Summer at Thornton Academy program. Held on Thornton Academy's beautiful campus, the program features two classes in the mornings and two activities per day in the afternoons and evenings.
Summer at Thornton Academy is designed for both local and international students and features classes in arts, STEM, humanities, and English Language, Learning, and more! All classes are taught by experienced Thornton Academy teachers.
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.
