This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Thayer Academy — an independent coed day school in Braintree for grades 5-12 — is committed to ensuring that students are known, connected, and prepared. This is Thayer’s strength, nurturing each student to reach their full potential in our classrooms, on our stages, at our playing fields, in far-off lands, and in communities around our campus. Whether it’s our entrepreneurship program, collaborative design labs, or Independent Science Research (ISR) course, Thayer offers a number of unique experiences to students willing to step out of their comfort zones and discover their authentic selves. Grounded in engagement, Thayer teaches leadership skills like effective communication, ethical decision-making, collaborative problem-solving, and relationship-building across lines of difference. These skills inform our internships, volunteer opportunities, senior projects, sports teams, musicals, and the myriad other opportunities which make up the Thayer experience. At Thayer, success truly is a team sport. See what Thayer has to offer at thayer.org.
