There’s no one kind of school that Thacher students prefer.
Every student’s educational journey prior to Thacher, their experience here in the Ojai Valley, and hopes for future growth can influence their college choices. The typical Thacher student applies to 8-10 schools. This is a healthy number that allows students to present strong, well-crafted applications. While some may think, “the more choices the better,” studies show that satisfaction is strongest when you have a few choices you know very well, rather than many which you know superficially. In the last five years, our seniors have submitted applications to about 150 colleges and universities annually. The College Counseling staff encourages students to be open to the wide range of educational opportunities available and takes pride in the fact that Thacher’s matriculation list is different every year, reflecting the unique mix of personalities, interests, and goals of each senior class.
