Day 1 Welcome!

The start of a new school year is an energized and joyful time for students and teachers alike. That was especially true this year after six months away from campus. Although TA’s opening day looked and felt a little different this time around, we are grateful to be back.

Head of School Carrie Brennan (and her dog Lila) shared this welcome back message with students, encouraging us all to find the joy in learning this Fall. In the coming weeks and months, we look forward to doing just that!
