Visiting

Virtual Visits and Interviews

The best way to experience Thacher is in person, so we can't wait to open our campus to visitors again. Until then, there are many ways to connect with us from afar, and we hope you take advantage of all the wonderful virtual events we have scheduled. We are excited to have you learn more about what makes Thacher a truly unique and special community.

Meanwhile, request and read our viewbook, explore our website, watch student videos—these are all great ways to get a preliminary feel for our School’s philosophy, culture, programs, and setting.

Places start to blur together on the boarding school tour circuit, but visiting Thacher is dramatically different. We learned about the latest research in teen development and how Thacher’s programs are purposefully designed to build a healthy, happy, and capable young person — all amidst a rigorous college-prep curriculum. And the spectacular campus setting and family atmosphere make for something truly special. You really can’t get what Thacher has anywhere else.”
