Tabor Academy is an independent preparatory school located in Marion, Massachusetts, United States. Tabor is known for its marine science courses. Tabor's location on Sippican Harbor, Buzzards Bay, has earned it the name of "The School by the Sea". The Wall Street Journal in 2007 ranked Tabor as one of the world's top 50 schools to prepare students to gain acceptance to America's most elite universities. Tabor participates in the Independent School League (ISL) and is a member of the New England Preparatory School Athletic Council and offers a wide range of extracurricular activities. Tabor's motto is "All-A-Taut-O", referring to the condition in which a sailing ship is fully rigged and everything is in place. This phrase is referenced in the school's songs, and is a tribute to Tabor's nautical background. The motto on Tabor's traditional crest, however, is "Vincit Semper Veritas" which in Latin translates to "Truth Always Conquers".
