List of 4 items.

  • Evening Visit

    A handful of admission officers come in the evenings on Mondays and Tuesdays, Formal Dinner nights. We are happy to let you know of student interest and if this would be an effective meeting time for you. Sports practice ends at 5:00 pm, so students might be able to meet with you from 5:30 - 6:15 pm (start of Formal Dinner) or from 6:50 – 7:30 pm afterwards. You are always welcome to join us for dinner if you like.
  • Interviews

    We do have a few representatives who offer interviews while they are on campus. This opportunity is only for students who know that they are applying, so it can be an excellent chance to connect, both for you and for our students. Please contact us if you would like to offer interviews; we will be happy to coordinate this for you.
  • Neighboring Schools

    If you are only visiting our campus, please know that we would be happy to have students from other schools come to your visit. Nearby schools for which this is likely to be an option include: Nordhoff, Villanova, Ojai Valley School, Oak Grove, and Besant Hill. Just ask the students to come to the College Office 10 minutes early so that we may direct them to your meeting site.

    If you are visiting Cate School during their Monday Night Fair, our proximity to their campus also makes it easy to squeeze in a stop at Thacher beforehand.
