Adolescent Program


What makes a 12- to 14-year-old tick? What kind of social and emotional needs do these young adolescents have? How will they transition to high school?

At Thacher, our students spend their final two years at our school pursuing personal excellence and preparing specifically for their transition to rigorous secondary school environments.

What’s distinctive about our Adolescent Program is that we use a block class schedule and a curriculum that is simultaneously integrated and adapted to each student. Students refine their thinking skills through seminars and independent studies.

In addition, our students run businesses, conduct community service, work on a small farm, and complete community-based internships as means to build upon and integrate their skills. Through the Adolescent Program, the students begin to develop a sense of who they will be as productive, caring adults in society.
