    This can only work if people update THE LAST post!! Please make sure to use the most recent post!

    @cababe97 (#38) didn't use the most recent post (#34) for her updates, so all consequent updates (#39, #40) by @sparkatzz and @CavsFan2003 don't include the updates in post #34. You guys please fix that. I've already updated twice, not doing it third time.

    Just wanted to clarify that while there are many schools with horse/equestrian programs, Thacher is the only school I know of where it is mandatory and core to the school’s approach to building character, self-awareness, and leadership.

    @justwingingit Thank you for being a point person!

    To my knowledge Cate no longer has the Mountain program (missed that on my prior edit, sorry).

    Also, for the "Jobs Program" category (I added it) -- I meant that the student all have jobs on campus. Not just the "taking care of the dorm" kind of thing, but like with NMH, working on the farm, maintaining the chapel, that kind of thing. I think internship programs are important to highlight and deserve their own separate category.

    I think you can remove "z-test" and the accompanying note from the 100% boarding list. I'm sure it was an internal test and no longer shows upon on BSR.

    Add to FARM: Hillside (Jr. boarding school)

    @JustWinginIt , great job!! Thanks!

    George has required jobs on campus.

    I am pretty sure that Lawrenceville continues to have Saturday classes every week (over by 11:35), so that one is in the wrong category (unless they are changing it.)

    You should just start a new list with relevant categories. For example, Arabic can likely be taken at any school which offers independent study and has an instructor or the ability to study online ( this goes for any subject really). We didn’t fund a single BS that didn’t have at least 3-5 international trips ( and many had dozens of options). Internships were available at many schools, though the scope and number varied a lot. I also think your boarding numbers need to be updated at least one school on your list is off by a large factor. Things change iver the years. Kids and parents need to know what is important to them and investigate further. This is one reason online rating systems for schools are not that accurate.
