Thetford Academy currently provides bus service or van transportation to and from all of our main sending areas in the Upper Valley.

Each route has a centralized drop-off and pick-up location; see list below for those locations (subject to change). In the town of Thetford, bus service is coordinated with the Thetford Elementary School and runs on three separate routes. This year, TA and Thetford Elementary School students will have combined bus routes. To learn more about TA’s bus service and transportation options, please contact Dean of Students, Siobhan Lopez, or call our front office at 802-785-4805.
