Parents and Families

Thetford Academy welcomes parents and families as an integral part of our school community and partners in our work as educators.

Throughout the year, we invite families to campus for school events and activities, athletic events and TA traditions. Open houses, an opportunity to connect with teachers and learn more about TA’s program and curriculum, are scheduled at the beginning of each semester.

TAPA, the Thetford Academy Parent Association, is an open organization and all parents, guardians, and community members are encouraged to join. This year, TAPA is rebuilding after a Covid-19 hiatus and is seeking volunteers to join in it work to support student and school events. Interested parents and families can reach out to Head of School Carrie Brennan for more information.
