How are your hopes, dreams, or ambitions for the future different from when you arrived at Thacher?
Prior to coming to Thacher, I had always had a relationship with horses, but after becoming fully involved in the horse program, I now aspire to work with horses professionally, which I could never have imagined being a possibility before I came to Thacher.
What makes boarding school so special?
While the thought of leaving home to go to a completely new place with completely new students can be scary, the boarding experience opens doors for students that a day school just can’t. At a boarding school you are able to be fully immersed in the campus life and fully connected to the other community members. You will make friendships that may turn into roommates, you will make memories that will last forever, and you will learn far more than what you thought possible. Your English teacher may turn out to be your coach and your dorm head, and your advisor could also be your art teacher. These deep connections between the student body and the campus faculty, built on honor, fairness, kindness, and truth, are truly only possible in a place where students and faculty live side by side.
