Information for Families & Volunteer Opportunities

We Are One Community

Our Tabor family is a national and global one – 13,000 parents, grandparents, alumni, and friends around the world. We strive to keep our connections strong and to uphold Tabor’s ethos in our lives, work, and communities. Most important of all, we are here to support current students – the youngest members of the Tabor family – as a network of passionate advocates, volunteers, and financial supporters.
There are many ways to take part in Tabor and thereby in the development of your Tabor student. We invite you to explore and get involved. Together, through Tabor, we are one community.

Get Involved

  • Keep up with parent information through the weekly Compass e-newsletter.
  • The traditional Family Weekends will not be held on campus this year, and will instead be reimagined using virtual technologies for our families to learn about their students’ experience. The Parent Engagement team is developing opportunities for parents to connect with each other and with the school and will be announcing them soon. If you have ideas for virtual or remote events, please share them with us by emailing Liz Cheney
  • Become a parent volunteer! Watch for opportunities to get involved through the Compass e-newsletter.

Join a Culture of Philanthropy

Giving has always played a major role in our community beginning with our founder, Elizabeth Taber, in 1876. Each year, thousands of supporters contribute to the Fund for Tabor, and others also help build facilities or strengthen the Tabor endowment. Within this tradition of giving, parents, grandparents, and past parents provide more than a third of all dollars given to Tabor each year
