The class of 2019 was admitted to 222 colleges and enrolled at 87 colleges and universities in 25 states, two countries, and Washington, DC. Included are Ivy League universities, military academies, NESCAC colleges and universities, large research universities, institutes of math, science & technology, colleges of art, design, and music, and liberal arts colleges.
Beginning with freshmen, class deans and advisors assist students in creating a four-year plan; students are encouraged to engage in coursework that challenges and readies them for the rigors of life after Tabor. Sophomores hear from college counselors during class meetings, and alongside their parents, they learn about components of the Tabor college process at Winter Family Weekend during a series of presentations made by counselors, college representatives, and a financial aid expert. Sophomores are also assigned college counselors during the spring. A program for junior parents takes place during Fall Family Weekend, including a college admission panel, a presentation on financial aid, and the opportunity to meet their child’s counselor. The option for students to take diagnostic tests allows juniors to understand which is the better option -- ACT or SAT test prep.
From the start, parents are considered integral and important to the process. Whether a parent is hands-off and laid back or more interested in having a hand in decision-making, Tabor’s college counselors are eager to partner in a way that works for each family.
A college counselor is assigned to each student at the end of their sophomore year.
Tabor is a test site for both the SAT and the ACT, eliminating the need to head off-campus. Diagnostic tests and test preparation classes are offered at no additional cost as part of a partnership with Method Test Prep.
College Mini Fairs are held on campus twice during the fall.
Essay writing workshops and guidance from college representatives, English teachers, and college counselors are provided during junior spring and senior fall.
Mock interviews with college admissions representatives take place at Tabor during junior spring.
Cutting-edge programming during Fall and Winter Family Weekends keeps Tabor families up-to-date on college news and trends.
Consistent access to college admissions representatives (via mini fairs and other visits to Tabor’s campus), programs during family weekends, and Tabor-specific programming represent the Tabor community’s excellent relationships with both American and international colleges and universities.

Join us virtually on December 9 as we meet with Kevin and Christine Campbell as they lead a program to help you understand how to pay for college. Information will be shared with families in terms of how to connect to this program.
