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 dormitory life an education in itself.
Another hallmark of the Tabor boarding experience are our small houses and dormitories. Our largest dormitory has just thirty-two students; the smallest has just five. There are a minimum of three adults 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.
