In their study of English at Thacher, students build the deep critical thinking skills they need to listen, speak, write, learn—and to explore the human experience through literature.
Their teachers are both guides and participants as all work together to take on challenging texts from a variety of genres and a diversity of voices. In small classes, students engage in rigorous discussion, regular essay writing, and creative analytical explorations. These skills and more prepare them to succeed in demanding college courses in any discipline.
“My experience writing at Thacher has proven invaluable at Williams. Beyond giving me the practical skills I needed, teachers like Mr. Robinson and Ms. Halsey instilled in me a deep love for writing. Because of Thacher, I write with joy. This makes all the difference.”
