Mountain Day

Thetford Academy’s 37th annual Mountain Day took place on Friday, Sept. 18.  One of our school’s most beloved traditions, Mountain Day was established in 1979 by the late headmaster Frederick G. Torrey, whose fondness for the outdoors was an inspiration for many.


During this annual adventure, our six classes hiked six nearby mountains viewable from Thetford Hill:  Mt. Cube (7th grade), Black Mountain (8th), Smarts Mountain (9th), Cardigan Mountain (10th), Mt. Ascutney (11th), and Mt. Moosilauke (12th).
This year, there was an alternate hike to Lincoln, NH.
