From Tabor Academy

Thank you for your interest in Tabor Academy, an ambitious and supportive boarding school community where students in grades 9-12 take risks, challenge themselves, mentor others, and prepare to lead as they live and learn in our school by the sea. We do community right. Community is everything at Tabor. Students and faculty work together toward their personal best while encouraging their peers to do the same. This inclusive and supportive environment allows our ambitious culture of learning to flourish. Our environment is also unique. Did you notice our location? We are literally on the sea, with quick access to all kinds of opportunities for recreation, beauty, reflection, and program offerings. While each student has a different relationship to our location, the stunning backdrop of Sippican Harbor is magical for us all and provides a constant metaphor for whatever we do. So enjoy learning about our school. And then, come for a visit! We’d love to welcome you.

    I genuinely enjoyed my experience at Tabor academy. This school should be ranked higher (as it is on many other lists) and it was a very important part of my life. I was a naval honors student, who will now be going to a highly acclaimed school for international relations. I will never forget my experience and time at tabor, which had ups and downs. Warning: Much of the school is elite, and un-accepting of certain political views. Either way, I enjoyed it. Go Sea wolves!

    Tabor was a great experience providing a solid academic education as well as many social opportunities outside of the classroom. All of the classes I took were taught by an interesting and diverse set of faculty. The clubs and activities ranged from being a tour-guide for prospective students to the football team or sailing in Sippican Harbour. The school culture was what you made of it, the more involved the better. Sports teams further built school culture and participation. I always felt safe around campus and had no issues with the local community or anyone else. Diversity is certainly lacking at Tabor, however, I believe in the coming years Tabor is working hard to develop a more diverse student body.
    The enrollment yield numbers at Tabor are telling- this is not a first choice school for many students. We were exceedingly disappointed with our daughter’s experience here. With a couple of exceptions, the faculty are lackadadical, and a halfhearted, non-serious attitudes pervades everything here. Its all very mediocre. I see in their write up they are trying to promote a unique ‘community’ but that is marketing. The administration is not responsive to parent or student concerns, and many of the kids joke about being dumped here. It was a terrible surprise to our family.
