The Southworth Society


The Southworth Society provides an opportunity for those who wish to support Thayer Academy through various planned giving methods. The Southworth Society is named for Dr. Stacy Baxter Southworth, Headmaster at Thayer Academy from 1920 to 1948. In 1922 Dr. Southworth spoke at West Point and invoked the vision that General Sylvanus Thayer had in his original bequest as … “a school that should offer to youth the opportunity to rise from small beginnings to honorable achievement for service to the common good.” Membership to The Southworth Society is open to all donors who inform Thayer of a planned gift such as, but not limited to, bequests, a charitable trust, annuities, or a life insurance policy with Thayer as the beneficiary.
