We encourage all prospective students and families to join us for an in-person campus visit. Throughout the year, the admissions department offers several opportunities to connect with our campus and community–including annual open house events, individual and family tours, and half-day “Taste of TA” experiences for students.

Ways to Visit

Admissions Open House

Every fall, Thetford Academy hosts an admissions open house for prospective students and families. This event, open to all, is designed to provide an overview of the Thetford Academy experience–from academics and the arts, athletics to extracurriculars–and is a great way for students to learn more about student life at TA.

Campus Tour

Interested families are also encouraged to connect directly with our admissions team to schedule a meeting and/or campus tour at a time. Tours are by appointment only and are available year-round. Contact Enrollment Coordinator Molly Dugan-Sullivan to learn more and to schedule a tour.

“Taste of TA” Events

To give students a “day in the life” experience, Thetford Academy also hosts several half-day, on-campus events we call “A Taste of TA.” These events give student groups the opportunity to sit in on both core and elective classes, and meet with faculty, staff, and students. A Taste of TA is a great opportunity to ask questions about academics, student life, and more!
