Tabor Academy is a coeducational, college preparatory boarding and day school located on Sippican Harbor on the Southcoast of Massachusetts. Tabor enrolls students demonstrating academic ability, strong motivation, sound character, emotional stability, and a willingness to participate fully in the school community.
Tabor is founded on the belief that a healthy school community finds common ground while embracing differences and, therefore, accepts a racially, ethnically, religiously, economically, and internationally diverse student body. Tabor students are expected to respect one another and to care for their school. Tabor's academic, artistic, athletic, and community programs provide distinctive opportunities for students to achieve genuine understanding, develop significant skills, and to identify and pursue personal goals.
As the "school by the sea," Tabor sustains a unique maritime heritage that embodies, in all its programs, the qualities of a seafaring life: thoughtful preparation for and awareness of the wider world, perseverance, courage, good humor, a sense of direction, and humility. Tabor's faculty commit themselves to balancing high demands with genuine affection for their students and to fostering relationships founded in compassion, personal integrity, and trust that anchor Tabor's community.
