Overview

The Thacher School is anything but typical. Here, perched at the foot of Ojai’s Topa Topa Mountains and beneath a big Western sky, students encounter a combination they won’t find anywhere else: demanding academics, tough character-building challenges and a healthy, authentic community culture that supports them every step of the way. It’s how Thacher succeeds in shaping resilient, compassionate, and ambitious young men and women who are prepared to take on the challenges of today’s world. We invite you to dive in and see for yourself what makes Thacher, Thacher.
