Tabor Academy's Full Profile

Overview

Overview

Tabor Academy says

"Tabor offers a thoughtful and rigorous academic program that provides a solid foundation for study at competitive colleges. For a school of our size, the curriculum contains an especially broad spectrum of courses, from introductory levels to honors and AP courses to highly sophisticated opportunities for independent work, in the traditional liberal arts fields such as the humanities, math, and the sciences, as well as more unusual offerings for a secondary school in areas such as Greek, marine science, and stage and lighting design ..." A big school program with a small school's humanity, Tabor Academy offers a rigorous academic program that includes 21 AP courses, and numerous honors level courses across the curriculum. Located on the picturesque shore of Sippican Harbor, Tabor's stunning oceanfront campus is home to 500 students from across the globe. Small dormitories, which average 18 students, provides an exceptional residential program and cultivates a strong sense of community. Tabor graduates often matriculate to the most competitive colleges in the country. In 2008, 90% of that class were admitted to one of their top three colleges, and 74% were admitted to their first choice. Outside the classroom, Tabor offers a wide range of after school activities that include four major drama productions, fifty interscholastic teams, (twenty-three of which compete at the varsity level) seven singing and four instrumental groups. New additions to our stunning campus include the Marine Science Center which opened in 2005 and the LEED Gold Certified Math & Science Center which opened in Sept. 2007. All new students are invited to Summer Orientation-at-Sea onboard our 92-foot schooner, the S.S.V. Tabor Boy.
