"Thacher does a really good job of making you work without you knowing it."
Morgan from Lake Forest, Illinois

"You’re given a big responsibility, but at the same time, you're given big freedoms…It’s just something completely different from a normal high school experience."
Amanda from Burlington, New Jersey
"I’ve tried so many new things here; I’ve been in school plays, I’ve gone on kayaking trips, I’ve studied in Spain for a year. When I leave Thacher, I’m not going to be afraid to try anything new."
Derek from Portland, Oregon
"You come to school and the first thing you do is go out in the wilderness… with the people you are going to spend the next four years with."
Grace from Excelsior, Minnesota
"At home, you couldn’t do both the musical and the sport; you had to choose one or the other. At Thacher, you can do it all. And there are so many opportunities."
Iona from San Francisco, California
"Obviously it was beautiful, but I don’t think it was until my second visit—which was really, really, fun—that I could actually see myself here. I never had been to a school like this and I had rarely even heard of a school like this. "
