Tabor Academy was founded by Mrs. Elizabeth Taber in 1876. It was a time, as Mrs. Taber was clearly aware, of great national events: the Centennial Celebration of the Declaration of Independence and the Centennial Exhibition in Philadelphia, as well as the end of the presidency of Ulysses Grant. A decade out from the end of the Civil War, much of the country was in an optimistic mood. Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in 1876; Thomas Edison was close to discovering the electric light. Custer would make his "last stand" in the summer. Harvard and Yale would play their first Thanksgiving football game in the fall.
At its May meeting, the Tabor Board of Trustees unanimously approved a Long Range Vision for the Year 2026, Tabor`s 150th anniversary, as well as the six Critical Priorities needed to achieve this Vision. The Board also approved a 3-Year Strategic Plan, the first in a series of plans to guide us on our journey to Vision 2026. Its approval was the culmination of an 18-month process called ViSTa, an acronym for “Vision, Strategy, Tactics.” Today, Tabor administrators, faculty, staff, and trustees are enthusiastically engaged in implementing the Strategic Plan.
