Welcome to Thames Academy!

Thames Academy is located at Mitchell College, which has long been known for providing a transforming educational experience in a caring and supportive environment. The College’s renowned academic support programs include the nationally recognized Bentsen Learning Center for students with documented learning disabilities and/or ADHD.

Thames Academy is a residential post-graduate program for students with academic challenges, documented learning disabilities, or other learning differences who can benefit from a structured learning and living experience that prepares them for the transition to college or a career. Unlike conventional post-grad programs offered at college preparatory schools, Thames includes college level courses for credit. The program is set on a college campus with a recognized tradition of support for students with learning differences.

Classes are small and designed to help students adjust to new life demands and interactions. Students can participate in the cultural life of a vibrant college community as well as enjoy activities specifically for Thames students. Thames Academy helps students prepare for the learning, social and emotional challenges of college or a career with confidence.
