We invite you to leap into an education unlike any other, where high-achieving academic rigor and uplifting community go hand in hand.

We look for candidates with proven academic achievement, demonstrated passions in areas like art, music, athletics, public service, or leadership, and a desire to dive wholeheartedly into a community that values cooperation, mutual respect, selflessness, and personal integrity.

Were excited for you to get to know us—and we look forward to getting to know you. Here, applicants and their families can find the resources and tools they need as they explore what living and learning at Thacher is all about.

“It’s not enough to say Thacher students are smart—because we are so much more than that. We have debaters and defensemen, ballet dancers and bee farmers, rock climbers and robotics engineers. We are not only the archetypal book-smart students, we are also thoughtful, creative, and curious. Being surrounded by this kind of diversity really inspires you to work hard and to cultivate your own unique talents.”
