Thayer Academy's mission is to inspire a diverse community of students to moral, intellectual, aesthetic, and physical excellence so that each may rise to honorable achievement and contribute to the common good.

The underlying strength of Thayer's community is found in the relationships that are formed here. Our parents form a partnership with the school to create a warm environment where the worth of each student is affirmed. Our teachers care deeply for their students, and their personal investment is returned many times over by a student body that is grounded, respectful, and ambitious. Thayer's students help shape a community where students feel support from one another and where many life-long relationships are formed.
