The presence of over 90 international students at Tabor provides a special opportunity to promote connections with people and cultures from around the globe. Our curriculum, service learning trips, and exchange programs aim to build collaboration, learning, and global understanding within a diverse school community.
A Global Educational Opportunity
We accept and welcome the challenges of working across cultures which involve, not only assisting our international students to integrate and adjust to American culture and school life, but also making cultural outreach and acceptance a priority for our American students as they prepare for careers and lives in the 21st century.
Tabor supports International Students and Families
The Center for International Students is staffed by two full time faculty members, Mr. Downes and Mr. DaSilva, who assist our international students as advisors and advocates. They help facilitate communication between students, faculty, families, and alumni. They help with travel and visa requirements, assist in the college process, and work tirelessly to build community throughout Tabor through international student leaders in order to broaden the cultural experience of all Tabor students! They join other faculty in traveling to Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Caribbean during the year to host admission and Tabor receptions and gatherings.
International Students Thrive at Tabor
A distinct result of Tabor's international program is the widespread involvement of our international students in both appointed and elected leadership positions across campus. International students serve as dormitory proctors, head tour guides, co-editors of the yearbook, class officers, peer tutors, library proctors, and Global Partners for International Orientation, as well as co-heads of our International Student Program. Each year several International Students are elected as Class President and officers by their classmates, reflecting their integration and active role in community life.
