TaborX: Learning through experience

Did you know that students at Tabor can take part in more than 50 unique activities that aren't part of the typical school day? Thanks to our TaborX (TX) experiential learning program, designed to replace the traditional Saturday school days, students engage in skill-based learning through exciting and informal passion project-style activities.
There are eight TX sessions throughout the year (most of them take place on Saturdays), and students have the chance to engage in a variety of TX offerings, including:

  • Adventurous Activities: rock climbing, mountain biking, fishing, and horseback riding
  • Creative Pursuits: improv, rock band, baking, cooking, photography, fashion, and HGTX
  • Cerebral Sessions: robotics, computing, sports management, and creative writing
  • Recreational Groups: roller hockey, golf, chess, and Tabor Boy
  • And so much more!
