About the School
Thayer Academy is an independent, co-ed day school in Braintree for grades 5-12, founded in 1877. Thayer is excited to introduce a new grade 5 for 2018-2019, in which students can participate in project-based work in the new Collaborative Design Lab and join in interscholastic sports, arts, activities, field trips, and community service. At Thayer, students thrive in an environment distinguished by rigorous academics, a supportive culture, and a vibrant community. Students are challenged in classes designed to foster intellectual and personal growth. With a 6:1 student-to-teacher ratio, an average class size of 14, and MacBook Air laptops for each student, students work hard in an atmosphere of true academic collaboration. In both the Upper and Middle Schools, numerous students participate in Thayer’s musicals, plays, bands, chorus, and dance performances. Student-athletes practice and play on two new turf fields that were recently installed on campus, adding to eight existing turf and grass fields. Students don’t need to choose at Thayer because of its unique scheduling; they can be performers, artists, athletes, and curious and engaged students. Easily accessible from the various bus routes from Boston’s Back Bay, Metrowest, the South Shore, and from the Red Line, Thayer draws students from 76 communities.
