Life in the Dorms

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 nineteen dormitories and hail from twenty states and twenty-four 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 in the management our dormitories. The proctors assist faculty in creating a positive dorm community and in upholding the rules of the dorm. They are provided extensive training for this important leadership role and are available to answer questions and to assist with any personal or school-related problems which a student may encounter and wish to share. Each year, approximately 30 juniors and seniors are selected as proctors with extensive input from houseparents in order to meet the specific needs of each dormitory community.
