Welcome to the Thayer Academy Parent Association (TAPA). Our parent-run organization provides a combination of volunteers and fundraising to support over 30 programs and time-honored events each academic year for Thayer's Middle and Upper Schools. Everything TAPA tackles benefits our students, faculty, staff, and parents. Participation in TAPA is a great way to meet fellow parents and Thayer faculty members, while providing the invaluable help needed to support our school. Above all, every family is automatically a member of TAPA, so we hope you will take advantage of our programming throughout the year and provide any help you can give - every hour of service or donation truly makes a difference.
We encourage you to visit Thayer's website www.thayer.org often for the most up to date and detailed news. Be sure to check this Parents' Page for the link to the online TAPA Volunteer Sign Up form as well as links to all the information you will need to have the best year yet!
