Tabor Academy

66 Spring St, Marion, MA 02738

Endowed and named by a wealthy whaling family, Tabor occupies a waterfront location near Cape Cod on Buzzards Bay. The school's curriculum, size and facilities have been increased over the years. Girls were readmitted as day students in 1979, and a boarding section was added in 1982. The curriculum includes Advanced Placement courses and honors sections in all major disciplines. In addition to the basic subjects, pupils may study oceanology, creative writing, ceramics, ethics, government, acting and music. Opportunities for celestial navigation, piloting and seamanship are available aboard the school's 92-foot schooner, Tabor Boy, which cruises the waters of southern New England during the fall and the spring. In addition to taking part in an annual community service day, all boys and girls satisfy a five-hour service requirement each year. Tabor is a nationally recognized Naval Honor School, allowing the school to nominate students to the US service academies.
