A Day in the Life

 
Tabor Academy was founded in 1876 as a boarding and day school for students from around the country and the world. That tradition remains today. Three hundred and fifty students live in Tabor’s sixteen dormitories and hail from twenty-three states and fourteen foreign countries. This mingling of diverse personalities and cultures makes daily life at Tabor an education in itself.

A hallmark of the Tabor experience is our small houses and dormitories. Our largest dormitory has just thirty-two students; the smallest has just five. At least three adults are associated with each dormitory, and sometimes as many as six. Keeping things small, where residents, both students and faculty, know each other well creates the richness that is the boarding experience at Tabor.
Tabor utilizes a student Proctor system to help faculty members manage dormitories, to assume leadership roles throughout the campus, and to assist younger students with meeting the challenges of daily life. Proctors undergo an extensive training session before school opens in September and are available to answer questions and to assist with any personal or school-related problems which the student is willing to share. Each year, approximately 30 juniors and seniors are selected as proctors. With input from houseparents, a committee of Deans and graduating proctors manages the process. With an eye toward dormitory need foremost, this committee determines the final selection and appropriate placement of these student leaders. Below is a list of this year's dormitories and the proctors for each dorm.
