Middle School Programs

The Thayer Academy Middle School academic program shows students how to study while also helping them master and then apply the skills and concepts they learn in each discipline.  Students meet daily with their advisor. Conference time with academic teachers (time beyond class) is available for individuals or small groups several times each week. In addition to academics, the program provides a balance of arts, activities, and athletics in the daily schedule thus promoting the growth and development of the whole student.  The community encourages student collaboration, creative thinking, problem solving, leadership, and responsibility as students prepare for the demands of high school and the developing challenges of their futures.
