Tuition and Financial Aid

Thetford Academy enrolls students in grades 7-12. We are the designated middle and high school for the town of Thetford, VT, and a school of choice for students in a wide range of Upper Valley sending towns.

VT/NH Town Tuitioning

A “sending town” is defined as a Vermont or New Hampshire town without its own public school for one or more grades K-12. These towns pay tuition from the town education budget to send their students to a wide variety of approved public or independent schools.  If you would like to learn more about your town’s tuitioning policies, please reference the contact list below.

Private Pay and Scholarship Options

Thetford Academy also offers a private pay option for families who do not live in an approved sending town. For families seeking financial assistance with tuition fees, the Academy offers a limited amount need-based scholarship support each year.

Families of students new to TA who wish to apply for scholarship assistance must complete Thetford Academy’s application for admission by March 1 and the FAST financial aid application by March 30. Families of currently enrolled students must submit a FAST application annually by March 30 as part of the scholarship renewal process. Applicants will be notified of scholarship decisions by April 15.

All private pay students are eligible to apply for scholarship assistance each year, provided they remain in good academic standing and there is no significant change in their family’s financial situation. Read Thetford Academy’s complete scholarship policy.

Thetford Academy’s tuition for the 2021-2022 year is $19,965.
