Where Thacher Students Go to College

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 this choice. The typical Thacher student applies to 8-10 schools; in the last five years, our seniors have submitted applications to about 140 colleges and universities annually. The College Counseling team 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.
