Thayer Academy
The mission of Thayer Academy 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.

Thayer Academy was founded in 1877 by Sylvanus Thayer, the father of West  Point. The Academy is situated on 25 acres and in eight buildings in  Braintree Massachusetts, 13 miles south of Boston. Thayer is a college  preparatory day school for boys and girls in grades 6 through 12. The  Academy has 650 students, and there are 84 full-time faculty members, 60%  of whom have advanced degrees. Class sizes typically range from 13-16
students. Tuition is 22,500, and almost 30% of our students receive some  level of financial assistance.

Thayer provides a rigorous and challenging college preparatory education  that attracts students from diverse social, ethnic, economic, and academic  backgrounds. The Academy seeks to equip students with the skills,  knowledge, and experiences to realize their potential in college and  beyond. At Thayer we believe that students will find academic success when  given opportunities for individual achievement and self-expression. The

Thayer curriculum strives to instill fundamental knowledge and study skills  while stimulating intellectual curiosity and growth. Furthermore, the  curriculum and Thayer environment combine to encourage students to  understand and appreciate different cultures, develop critical thinking  skills, enhance creativity, promote physical and emotional well-being, and
foster a concern for others.

Salaries are competitive with independent schools in our area, and the  school is generous in its allocation of funds to support professional  development. The Academy provides a significant measure of coverage for  individual and family medical and dental coverage and contributes 10% to a  TIAA-CREF annuity if a teacher has already been participating in that program.
