What do you like best about living and studying at Thacher?
I really enjoy being part of multiple facets of the Thacher community. I can play three varsity sports, write for the Notes (the school newspaper), and play the violin. Thacher gives me opportunities to find what I love, as well as continue what I know I love.
Who has had the greatest impact on you during your time at Thacher?
One of the people that had a large impact on me at Thacher was my freshman year math teacher, Mr. Meyer. Math was my hardest subject but Mr. Meyer was always there for extra help. He helped guide me through the year and showed me that I can do any subject, even if it's hard for me at first.
What advice would you give to a student thinking about boarding school?
Make use of the adults at your school for support. When you’re away from your parents, it’s important to seek help from other sources at school. There are so many people that want to support you. These adults can help you navigate social situations, academics, sports, or stress. The faculty and staff care about your well-being, so don’t be afraid to reach out to them.
What advice would you give to a student thinking about coming to Thacher?
Don’t be scared to try new things. Thacher gives you so many opportunities, but it’s up you to take advantage of them. Join a new club, try out for the winter musical, or go sea kayaking around the Channel Islands. It just takes a little bit of initiative on your part and a great memory can be made.
