An Unprecedented Year: Applying for Fall 2021
2020 has been a year of unprecedented challenge and opportunity. As we all work to adjust to ever changing circumstances and to prioritize the health and safety of our community and our applicant families, we want to assure you that the admission process at Thacher will be fluid, flexible, and above all, equitable.
With this in mind, you will note in the following sections these changes to our admission process: for the time being we will have virtual campus visits and interviews; standardized testing will be optional; and we are waiving the application fee for all U.S. families applying for financial aid.
As you will see, the theme here is simple: Thacher is committed to fair access to our process and will not penalize students for circumstances beyond their control. As a small, relationship-based community, this is an easy move for us to make, and we look forward to partnering with your family as you embark on the journey.
