As the Academy navigates the uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, our campus remains closed to visitors for the 2020-21 school year. While we look forward to the day we can once again host you in person, we have moved all of our Admissions events online to welcome you to experience our vibrant, supportive community and to share all that Thayer has to offer.

It doesn't matter if you have no programming background or if you've been coding for years ... we will be doing a lesson you can take part in. Make sure you have paper and pencil ready to go before you log in! We will reserve time towards the end of this session for any questions you have for Mr. Cedrone and some of Thayer's top computer science students.
