Board of Trustees

Thetford Academy is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees.

The Thetford Academy Board of Trustees consists of no more than 21 members, including an alumni representative nominated by the Thetford Academy Alumni Association; town representatives nominated by the school boards of Thetford, VT, Strafford, VT, and Lyme, NH; and numerous members-at-large from the community. The TA Board of Trustees is a self-electing board. Trustees serve four-year terms, with the exception of the town representatives who are elected for one year at a time.

Board Meetings

The TA Board generally meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month with a meeting start time of 6:45 p.m. Meetings are open to the public. Starting September 2022, the TA Board will return to conducting its meetings in person on the TA campus, with a link provided for those who want to participate virtually. Meeting agendas and the Head of School monthly report are available at this link; meeting minutes are posted directly on this page.
