Thales Academy

Thales believes schools should accomplish three main objectives: teach students knowledge, teach them how to think on their own, and give them the tools they need to reach their greatest potential. They provide an excellent and affordable education for students from Pre-K to 12th grade through the use of Direct Instruction and a Classical Curriculum that embodies traditional American values.


Thales has several locations around the triangle with many more in the works throughout the region. Their growth and success is not surprising. The educational approach is different from a traditional public school, but you can’t argue with results. During production, we were floored at how mature, well spoken and polite every single student was. It’ll be fun to check in on these kids in a few years to see what they’ve accomplished.
