Anti-Racism and Social Justice

Starting the 2024-25 academic year, as part of our evolving social justice curriculum work, the course sequence for Anti-Racism and The Common Good will change as follows:

  • Academic Year 2024-25: All ninth graders and sophomores will take The Common Good
  • Academic Year 2025-26: All ninth graders will take The Common Good and sophomores will take Anti-Racism

These programmatic developments are not only in keeping with the Academy’s Strategic Plan for Racial Equity and Justice, but they are also in line with the Academy’s very mission statement, which seeks to inspire a diverse community dedicated to contributing to “the common good.” Thayer Academy remains committed to being a more diverse, equitable, inclusive, and antiracist institution.
