TA Day of Giving: May 8, 2019

It’s almost here! Thetford Academy’s second annual Day of Giving is coming on May 8, 2019. This year, in honor of our 200th birthday, we are celebrating #200ReasonsWhy Thetford Academy is important to YOU.

We each connect to Thetford Academy for both universal and personal reasons. We support education, but we also have a teacher or staff member who has made a profound impact on our lives. We love the wide variety of course offerings at TA, but there is also a memory of a specific class that inspired us to learn more. For some, it’s being a Panther on an athletic team–for others its competing in robotics tournaments or being a part of the theater program.

All of your “reasons why” are important to Thetford Academy. And every time you make a gift to TA, we invest your gift back into these reasons–our teachers, our coaches, our curriculum, programs, our campus–ensuring the next generation of students will have access to opportunities that inspire them, too. Make your gift today at And while you’re there, tell us your #reasonwhy!
