    Virtual Tours and Interviews starting September 21 2020.

    Note: Students from Mainland China must do an initial interview through Vericant. 
  • Step 4: Testing (Optional for 2021-22)

    Standardized tests are part of the application process. Most applicants will take the SSAT and can register here. Students who are applying for the 11th grade or higher may submit either PSAT or SAT scores in lieu of the SSAT. Non-native speaking applicants must also submit TOEFL scores in addition to the SSAT. Please note, regardless of which testing you plan to submit, you will still have to go to the SSAT site and create a Web Login ID in order to complete the application.

    Please enter the appropriate test codes for Tabor Academy when you register to ensure that we receive your scores: 

    SSAT: 7594
    TOEFL: 8062
    SAT/ACT/PSAT: Because we are a secondary school, Tabor Academy does not have a code for these tests. Please have your school counselor add your scores to your transcript or send us a copy of your official score report at admissions@taboracademy.org
  • Step 5: The Application

    Tabor uses SSAT’s Standard Application Online (SAO) as our singular application. Applicants must register at SSAT in order to create a Web Login ID. Please follow the instructions provided for submitting testing, teacher recommendations, and essays. Your application is forwarded to Tabor once you have paid the application fee. Schools that use their own recommendation forms or use letters of recommendation must send these directly to Tabor and not to SSAT.

    NOTE: Artists and musicians wishing to share (optional) supplemental materials are welcome to do so via Dropbox. Click here to create a Dropbox account and make a folder with images of your artwork and/or music file. Once files have been uploaded, share the folder through Dropbox with Tricia Smith, Chair of the Art Department, at tsmith@taboracademy.org. Ms. Smith will then receive a notification of your submission to her dropbox. Music files may be shared with Nadine Cunningham, Chair of the Music Department, via email at: ncunningham@taboracademy.org.

    Applicants from China: Rather than using Dropbox please use ISSUU.com to create your portfolio and email the link to tsmith@taboracademy.org.
