“One of the first and most important lessons that I learned at Tabor was that of differentiation. Tabor showed me that distinguishing yourself from the crowd not only brought success in the business world, but that it would also result in personal fulfillment. What makes the Tabor experience extremely unique is that it is able to foster this individual growth while in a strong and caring community of people who take the utmost interest in your progress. A Tabor education gives students the opportunity and tools to step outside of “average” and live distinctive lives.” – Brian Lachman
