Reflecting on Role Models

Posted by David DeFilippo '84 on Aug 20, 2019 9:58:09 AM

I had the good fortune to attend and graduate in 1984 from Tabor. My experience included structure and focus on academic rigor and athletic discipline, as well as my initial learnings on leadership development. This development took many forms, be it in the classroom, on the playing fields or in the dormitory; however, the common denominator was the consistent support from the faculty.

Leadership Lessons from Outward Bound

Posted by Brandon Sherman ’20 on Feb 7, 2019 2:42:37 PM

Excerpts from a speech by Brandon Sherman ’20

About a year ago today, my advisor, Ms. Kaplan, elbows me during All-School and says, “pay attention, you’re going on this.” Sure enough, about four months later I found myself heading off in June on an Outward Bound trip, having successfully applied for the Tabor Outward Bound Scholarship.

Leadership in Training at Tabor Academy’s Summer Program

Posted by Meghan Olt, Leaders-In-Training Director on Aug 1, 2018 9:31:21 AM

This summer at TASP, nine campers completed a five-week program structured around leadership called Leadership in Training. Their goal was to develop the “powerhouse skills” it takes to become a leader in all aspects of their lives. These nine campers, calling themselves the “LITs,” took over the West Reading Room in the Charles Hayden Library as their summer home. To help the reading room feel less like a library and more of a chill zone for teenagers, the LITs decorated the space with their self-portraits and large colorful posters to remind themselves of the skills they wanted to develop: self-awareness, self-regulation, teamwork, and grit!

Learning Through Leadership

Posted by Lillia Lovell ‘18 on Mar 14, 2018 9:00:00 AM

My involvement in the Tabor Model United Nations program has been an amazing experience. As a lover of debate, I have always been skilled in arguing my point and convincing others of its strength, but Model UN has also taught me the importance of working with others, and that unity and resolution can be found even with many strong opinions being voiced.

As my final fall season came to a close, I was overcome with the bittersweet feeling of my final days on the field hockey field, while looking forward to a successful squash season. Along with the start of a new season came my responsibilities of captainship. This was a chance to leave my mark on Tabor Academy as the Varsity Girls Squash captain.

Owning the Culture: What are Tabor Students Like?

Posted by Mel Bride on Feb 11, 2016 11:03:00 AM

There is no better reflection of the health of a school than the health of its student culture. What are Tabor students like when adults aren’t around? Do students feel safe to be themselves? What do students tolerate from one another and where do they draw the line? What are those unwritten student codes that guide decision-making on a daily basis on campus? What kinds of things are met with, “We don’t do that here.”?

Empowering Conversations with Ms. Kaplan

Posted by Bridget Lattimer '16 on Dec 11, 2015 2:39:12 PM

This article originally appeared in Tabor's student newspaper, The Log.

Following Alexis Jones’ talk on campus, one of Tabor Academy's newest faculty members Emily Kaplan joined a group of students living in Baxter in a discussion about the feminism talk. Beginning with their feelings on the speech, the conversation quickly turned into much more. Topics such as gender, sexuality, feminism, race and diversity were brought to the table and, when it was time for everyone to go to study hall, the participants begged Ms. Kaplan to continue these talks.
