Alumni, We’re Bringing Mountain Day to YOU!

Mountain Day has been a TA tradition for more than 40 years.
This year, we want to make it #MountainDayEverywhere.

Do you miss Mountain Day at TA? Every year for more than 40 years, Thetford Academy students have been lacing up their shoes to climb one of the six mountains visible from TA’s front door. This annual class hike is one of TA’s favorite traditions, and if it’s one of yours, now is your chance to relive it!

In honor of our Bicentennial, we are bringing Mountain Day to YOU. On the weekend of September 15 & 16, 2018 (NOTE: September 8 if you’re in the San Francisco Area!), Thetford Academy will be hosting hikes across the country, bringing alumni together to celebrate TA’s Bicentennial from the trails.

Join us in…

Boston, MA
Boulder, CO
Los Angeles, CA
San Francisco, CA
Burlington, VT
Central VT
Upper Valley VT/NH

NOTE: If you don’t see your city listed and would like to organize a hike, please contact Bridget Dugan-Sullivan ’06 or Zoe Hack Keller ’01, the event organizers.

Stay tuned to your email and TA’s Facebook page for additional details. We hope you’ll join us to kick off the Bicentennial celebrations on #TAMountainDay2018!
