  • Q. How are Tabor students assisted through the college process? When do college counselors begin their work?

    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.
  • Q. Are parents included in the college process?

    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.
