Thetford Academy’s Counseling Office works to help students reach their personal academic and post-secondary goals, providing assistance with course selection and sequence, college counseling and preparation, study-abroad and dual enrollment opportunities, and social and emotional support.
School counselors work closely with advisors and grade-level teams to collaborate on students’ progress and challenges. All students are assigned a counselor who will provide individualized support throughout their years at TA.
The Counseling Office also provides resources and support for students seeking opportunities of interest and challenge beyond TA’s core curriculum. Counselors help students explore study abroad options, dual enrollment and college credit opportunities, and technical and apprenticeship programs.
As students prepare for graduation, TA’s Counseling Office works closely with each student to help them achieve their post-secondary goals. Whether a student’s interest is in two- or four-year colleges, the armed services, or interim/gap year programs, TA’s counselors are prepared to support students and families every step of the way.
TA Counseling Department Mission and Vision
The Thetford Academy Counseling Department program works in collaboration with our students and their parents, teachers, and the community to provide academic, social, and emotional support in order to enable every student to be a fully engaged and active citizen and lifelong learner. We provide a comprehensive, developmental program that advocates for equity of opportunity and access to all students regardless of background, socioeconomic status, and ability.
Through the programming of the TA Counseling Department, all students will build skills, both academic and personal, that will empower them to create opportunities within and beyond our school walls, foster a sense of community, and move successfully into the wider world as informed, curious, and responsible citizens who are able to achieve college and/or career success. We believe in the power of personal progress, and aim to foster minds capable of endless growth and citizens who will strive to achieve the greatest positive impacts on their schools and communities in the near and long term.
