Welcoming New Students to TA

Thetford Academy is excited to welcome more than 75 new students from towns all across the Upper Valley–and the world–to our community this year. On Sunday, August 22, TA will host a “New Student Welcome” event to give all new-to-TA students and families the opportunity to better familiarize themselves with our campus and community before the first day of school. Student ambassadors will team up with new students to help them find their lockers, the location of each of the classrooms on their schedules, and all the important places and spaces to know on campus. There will be time for questions and conversation, introductions, and spending some relaxed time together before we embark on the new school year. We look forward to getting to know each of our new students and heading into the new year together.
