Campus Life

Clubs & Activities

Follow your passions!

In addition to keeping up with classwork and participating in afternoon programs, many students join clubs and activities that allow them to pursue their interests. 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 Model U.N., The Art Executives, 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 Activities Council

Other activities add to our weekend programming. The Student Activities Council (SAC) works with our Director of Student Activities to plan weekend social and community events of interest to the students. On any given weekend you might 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.

Sample Student Run Clubs

List of 6 items.

  • A Cappella Groups

    There are two a cappella singing groups on campus: The Tabor Tones (boys) and The Nightingales (girls). These student run groups frequently perform in Chapel or All-School Meeting keeping us entertained with popular songs they arrange and perform. Practices are generally one night a week.
  • GSA

    Tabor’s Gender Sexuality Alliance has a large presence on campus, and serves as a network, support system, and learning environment for students of all genders and sexualities. The group meets roughly once each month, where students engage in LGBTQ-related conversation and plan events on campus. Past events and initiatives started by the GSA include Tabor’s "Day of Silence”, the “Changing the Game” video initiative, and talks from LGBTQ guest speakers. The Gender Sexuality Alliance’s mission is to make Tabor not only a safe space for students of diverse genders and sexualities, but also a welcoming place for students of all backgrounds. 
  • I AM THAT GIRL

    I AM THAT GIRL, also referred to as IATG, is a non-profit foundation cofounded by Alexis Jones and Emily Greener. The IATG Local Chapter Program is about creating a safe space to allow girls to be who they truly are. It is about allowing girls to express things that matter to them. As a chapter we meet at least twice a month to talk about things that matter like confidence, respect, relationships, being a girl in today's media, how girls are seen at Tabor, fears, struggles, self-love, and so much more. The goal for this chapter is to create a close-knit group within our community for our females, but make these topics an everyday conversation for everyone.
  • Juntos!

    A club dedicated to helping local immigrants learn English. Spanish language students began this club which travels twice a week to New Bedford's Community Economic Development Center in order to be of assistance. They teach helpful phrases and make supportive relationships with newcomers to our area. Over 30 students are involved and while many are studying Spanish, it is not a requirement.
  • Model U.N.

    Model U.N. is an active club on campus that attends conferences for beginners right through advanced level so that anyone can participate. We make efforts to attend conferences locally as well as some we might travel to over weekends or school breaks. The Model U.N. Club members enjoy learning about other countries and cultures, as well as strengthening their debate techniques.
  • Special Olympics Club

    Tabor’s Special Olympics Club partners with Special Olympics Massachusetts in their goal to provide year-round sports training and athletic competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. In addition to roughly 100 student volunteers, the group has an 8-10 student board of directors which helps to decide on programming throughout the year. In the past, the group has hosted basketball tournaments, a Young Athletes program, R-word campaigns and a Unified Fitness Day, while also participating in several off campus events such as the Hyannis Jolly Jaunt.
