Advice and Advocacy from College Counseling Professionals

Tabor Academy's college counseling program is a personalized journey guiding students toward their higher education aspirations. Our experienced counselors work closely with students and families to navigate the college selection process, offering tailored guidance for researching, applying, and making informed decisions about their academic futures. Through individualized attention, workshops, and extensive resources, Tabor's college counseling equips students with the tools to find the best-fit institutions that align with their goals and aspirations, preparing them for success beyond our campus.

What We Offer

The College Counseling Office provides students and families with the support necessary to make informed and intentional decisions. In addition to being college counselors with over 85 years of combined experience, we are also dorm parents, coaches, program directors, and advisors who attend competitions, performances, presentations, and many other student events. Showing up both inside and outside the classroom allows us to know our counselees as well-rounded individuals. As a result, we help students thrive by representing and advocating for them.
