Our tradition of deep connection to nature is finding new expression as we remake our campus into a model of sustainability.
Deep regard for the great outdoors has always been at the core of who we are—walking the trails at dusk, scaling a climb you thought impossible, mucking out a horse stall early in the morning. Today more than ever, living sustainably is an essential part of that ethos. Thacher strives to be a leader in sustainable practices and to equip and inspire our students to take action, develop bold solutions, and act as lifelong stewards of the planet.
Indeed, Thacher has been named a Green Achiever in the California Green Ribbon Schools recognition program, the highest honor at the state level, and went on to earn an official designation as a 2017 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School alongside other sustainability-minded schools from around the nation. Both programs recognize excellence in resource efficiency, health and wellness, and environmental and sustainability education.
