Thacher Traditions

What does it mean to be a part of Thacher tradition?

From the moment Sherman Day Thacher opened the School in 1889, his students began to create traditions—an eclectic range of meaningful, quirky, or fun customs that become part of School life—and to pass them on to succeeding generations. We can only guess who started some traditions, because they seem to have always been there. And new traditions are constantly added, as incoming students and new faculty re-create the School. In fact, this may be Thacher’s best tradition of all—bringing talented, supportive, creative people together in one extraordinary place.
