Clubs & Activities

Follow your passions!

In addition to athletics and arts activities, after school co-curricular options abound. Groups such as Model UN, Engineering, Debate, Math, Robotics Team, Bowsprit literary magazine, Fore ‘N’ Aft yearbook, Photo Pool, and The Log student newspaper are purposeful activities that combine particular passions and interests with collaborative and individual pursuits. Some groups have been at Tabor for generations, while others emerge with burgeoning student interest; if there is student interest and a faculty sponsor, a club is born.

Student-Run Clubs

Our clubs, such as Special Olympics, the GSA, and I Am That Girl meet regularly and have a student leadership structure. In addition to meetings, these groups host or attend events on and off campus and help to serve our community in a variety of ways.

Student Community Service Board

Much of our community service activities are monitored and planned and promoted through our community service board of directors. Service is an important value at Tabor and we are proud of our student leadership in this area.

Student Activities Council

Other activities add to our weekend programming. The Student Activities Council (SAC) works with our Student Life Office to plan weekend social and community events of interest to the students. On any given weekend, students may decide to cook, head out at dawn to fish, or participate in a Ping-Pong tournament.

Student Government

Tabor Academy Student Council (TASC) is our constitutionally organized form of student government with elected officers at each class level and co-heads of school elected by the student body. They plan class events and fundraisers as well as suggest policy updates concerning student life to the Head of School.
