Thompson's Island is a
157-acre island in Dorchester
Bay. It was first settled by
David Thompson who es-
tablished a trading post
there for the Neponset In-
dians in 1626. In 1634, the
town of Dorchester acquired
the island which was then
turned into farm lands. In
1833 the Boston Asylum for
Indigent Boys moved from a
location in the city of Boston
to Thompson's Island where
a farm was maintained and
improved for 130 years.
The present school com-
plex consists of eight build-
ings: four dormitories with
classrooms and living facili-
ties for 120 boys, the gymna-
sium, Bowditch Hall, which
houses the dining room, the
infirmary and the adminis-
trative offices, Gardner Hall,
which includes the school
library and assembly hall,
and a science laboratory
building which also contains
a complete Woodworking
shop. In addition to these
structures, there are several
other buildings that serve as
staff housing and storage
areas for maintenance equip-
The athletic fields and
buildings are located on a
rolling plateau in the center
of the island. The southern
half of the island is mostly
lowland, a considerable por-
tion of which is excellent
saltwater marsh. The tidal
ponds and salt marshes are
teeming with a wide variety
of wildlife. Fish and clams,
migratory fowl, and a great
variety of songbirds feed in
the marsh, which is extreme-
ly rich in nutrients. Open
fields from the abandoned
farm, several good stands of
hard and softwood trees, and
apple and peach orchards
make Thompson's Island a
most attractive location for

The Thompson Academy faculty includes fourteen
full-time teachers, and a varying number of part-time
counselors, aides, and technicians, each of whom is
dedicated to the positive development of young men. Mr.
John D. Pinto was appointed headmaster in June 1973 after
serving as director of curriculum for four of his six previous
years of affiliation with the school. A graduate of Tabor
Academy and Columbia College, with graduate work at the
Honeywell Computer Institute, and University of Rhode
Island, and Boston University, Mr. Pinto is representative of
most Thompson Academy faculty members. Many have had
teaching or student experience in leading private boarding
schools, all have graduated from superior colleges and
universities lmost with graduate degreesl, and every faculty
and staff member has fully demonstrated his educational
expertise and commitment to compassionate teaching before
being appointed to his position.

Thompson Academy is the fifth oldest independent
school for boys in New England. The academy was
founded in 1814 as the Boston Asylum for Indigent
Boys, principally to "afford protection and support" to
the sons of local families that had suffered from
conditions brought about by the War of 1812, and were
therefore unable to supply proper guidance or support
to their pre-or early adolescent sons.
A number of philanthropic Bostonians decided
early in 1813 to establish a "home school" for such
boys to provide them with food, shelter, education, and
direction. Descendants of many of the original funding
families remain active members of the Thompson
Academy Board of Trustees.
In 1832, a second, similarly oriented school was
independently incorporated as the Boston Farm School,
and Thompson's Island in Boston Harbor was
purchased from the city of Dorchester for its setting.
Because the objectives of the Boston Asylum for
Indigent Boys and the Boston Farm School were much
alike, and because the living facilities of the Asylum
were becoming increasingly crowded in its single brick
building in Boston's West End, a joint petition was
presented to the General Court of Massachusetts for an
Act uniting the two schools into one, the Boston Asylum
and Farm School for Indigent Boys.
The assets of the former Asylum School were
liquidated, and thus, a solid financial base upon which
the new school would establish its future growth was
provided. The new school continued to serve needy
boys of good character and to provide a year-round
home, academic instruction, and a thorough apprecia-
tion of manual and industrial arts and the principles of
During the 19th century the school enlarged its
campus, its combined academicfagriculturalfvoca-
tional program and its student body and staff. In 1907,
the school name was changed to the Farm and Trades
School: however, the school's orientation and program
One of the most distinctive extracurricular
activities of the early Farm and Trades School had its
inception in 1857. According to school historian
Raymond W. Stanley, some 12 boys were casually
amusing themselves one afternoon creating musical
sounds through combs covered with tissue paper. They
were soon joined by three boys with violins, and this
group of 15 began to schedule informal meetings on a
regualr basis. In THE FOUR THOMPSONS, Stanley
writes: "A bass violin, saxhorn, cornopean, and drum
were added to form the nucleus of what became, the
same year, the first school band in America." The
Greek philosopher Plato suggested in the REPUBLIC
that musical instruction for young people would impart
to them an important sense of rhythm and harmony to
broaden and to supplement a classical education. It was
the boys of the early Farm and Trades School, however,
that were to finally implement this platonic concept.
In 1956, The Farm and Trades School on
Thompson's Island was renamed Thompson Academy,
a titular change which both formalized and reflected a
process of evolution that the school had been
undergoing for some fifty years. The Farm and Trades
School, as its name implied, had provided a practical
training program which according to a 1947 school
. . in each boy considerable skill in several of the
departments of practical training with intensive
training in one or two departments. These practical
departments included printing, sloyd, carpentry,
heating engineering, painting, glazing, electrical
repairs, plumbing and steam repairs, cement work,
floor care, building maintenance, farming, lawn care,
shrubbery, tree pruning, shoe repair, laundry
operation, clothing care, baking, vegetable canning,
butchering, meat cutting, poultry dressing, office and
Additionally, each student was required to
complete a full curriculum of academic instruction.
Typical school days included four hours of class work,
four hours of work training, and four hours of play and
recreation. Although demanding, the success of that
vigorous program is yet attested to by hundreds of
By 1955, however, the Trustees of the School had
determined that a disproportionately large number of
then recent graduates had left the farm and shops on
Thompson's Island only to find that their eclectic but
somewhat obsolete skills were not so easily marketable
as they had been in an earlier era. At that time, the
Board of Trustees elected to change the name of the
school to Thompson Academy, to extend the program to
include the full four years of high school, to both modify
and intensify the academic curriculum, and insofar as
was possible to continue to introduce each boy to a
variety of practical, manual skills.
The formula has been tremendously successful.
The farm program ended in 1963 as a result of a
disastrous fire which destroyed the main barn, much of
the farm equipment, and some live stock. Several of the
industrail arts courses-glazing, printing, vegetable
canning, poultry dressing, etc.-were also terminated
because of lack of training facilities and diminishing
student and social interest. Yet, even as the academic
curriculum became more and more geared to college
preparation, Thompson Academy has continued to
emphasize the importance of well-roundedness and
manual skill development.
In 1974, each student is responsible for the
execution of a daily work assignment. Some boys work
on the school boat, others assist the chef with
preparation and service of meals, while still others are
engaged in various maintenance operations that range
from custodial work to machine repair. In addition to a
boy's work program, there is, of course, the
opportunity to take formal course work in carpentry,
sloyd, and auto mechanics. In effect, a modified version
of the originial study-work-play concept remains very
much intact, and Thompson Academy graduates of the
1970's continue to be as manually capable as they are
well prepared for higher education.
PROGRAM OF STUDIES
Because Thompson Academy deals with students
from such varied backgrounds, the school curriculum is
designed to afford maximum individualization. The small
class size, normally limited to a maximum of fifteen
students, facilitates this policy. Courses covering a wide
range of subject matter are offered in four forms-
remedial programs, traditional college preparatory
courses, dynamic team taught interdisciplinary courses
and independent directed studies programs.
During the first week of school intensive testing
identifies areas of strength and weakness for each student
and provides a basis for course placement in the tailoring
of individual programs in remedial and college
preparatory courses. Equally important are the inter-
disciplinary, team taught courses which explore various
aspects of some broad topic, allowing each student an
opportunity to pursue a particular facet, contributing with
other members of the class to an understanding of the
whole. This approach is a proven method of encouraging
motivation in students by involving them in the design and
instruction of a course grounded in a problem of inherent
Independent projects allow a student to pursue his
special interests for academic credit under the guidance of
a member of the faculty.
Traditional college preparatory courses include the
