On January 19, Tabor Academy will host their annual winter open house that has typically focused on Arts and Athletics. This year, they are adding innovation to the list of programs hoping to provide an opportunity for prospective families to continue learning about Tabor.
“Tabor is well-known for our strong programs in arts, music, and athletics, but we hoped to shine a spotlight on another area of our program that we are less publicly known for, our burgeoning Maker’s Lab. Over the last few years, our courses in engineering and computer science have made the Maker Lab a hub of activity and innovation, and one of our most popular offerings,” said Kerry Saltonstall, Director of Communications.
Beyond the Maker Lab, prospective students are invited to meet coaches, watch a rehearsal of the winter musical entitled Heathers: The Musical, and/or create an art project in the Braitmayer Arts Center. “After, we hope everyone will stay on to cheer on the Seawolves during their afternoon athletic contests starting between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm. Girls’ squash and hockey, wrestling (co-ed), and boys’ hockey and basketball are home,” said Saltonstall.
Director of Enrollment Marketing Laura Burgess added, “Learning about the programs and the people who will be part of your experience outside the classroom is an essential component of the secondary school search process. Often, students are able to maximize their success and experience within the classroom when their experience in all other aspects of their life on campus is happy and filled with robust opportunities and strong mentorship and friendship. This is why this event is so important to our school and why we look forward to it every year.”
