Note from Deba
It is with great pleasure that I report over 90% student retention for the upcoming 2021-2022 academic year. Thank you! Your confidence in our programs and dedication and commitment to our school was evident in your re-enrollment responses. We look forward to continuing our journey with you.
March 10th closed the first phase of our admissions process for new students. The large number of outstanding applications representing children and families eager to join our community created difficult choices for the Admissions Committee. With so few spaces available to fill and the uncertainty of September social-distancing restrictions, we have the largest number of students placed into our wait pool in recent memory.
I am most appreciative of our stellar Director of Admission and Enrollment Management, Nikki Toon. Nikki spent weeks of long hours, nights, and weekends, providing a smooth, positive experience to our prospective families. I am also thankful to our guides, who joined Nikki in conducting over a hundred interviews, and current parents, who joined us in Zooms to answer questions and share their experiences of being part of the Thacher Community.
We truly have a community built on a partnership of respect, love of children, and shared values.
Thank you all for making this a wonderful place to work and grow.
