At Tilton, no matter the teacher, their favorite subject is you.
Today’s students need skills and experiences that empower them to navigate an ever-changing world. At Tilton School, we believe wellness, confidence, and achievement all begin with essential skills.
Creation generates solutions to address needs and opportunities-through empathy, analysis, ideation, and iteration.
Inquiry looks beyond the idea of easy problems and simple solutions. It seeks multiple data types, examines different angles, thinks critically, and questions the role of bias in the interpretation of facts—and in the formulation of opinions.
Play engages the world for curiosity’s sake, for the purpose of trying something new, without fearing the consequences. Play is our word for raw experimentation, pure research, and harmless—but insightful—trial and error.
How do we learn best? By doing.
Encompassing all aspects of school life at Tilton—and leveraging the unique power of our residential campus—five areas of Self Discovery ensure that students push the boundaries of their own learning.
Lots of students participate on one of over two dozen athletics teams, but opportunities abound, including Leadership and Club Activities, Community Service, and the Performing Arts
Tilton’s unique Grade Level Programming is an age-appropriate life skills program, infusing confidence and capability into every student on campus.
Extensive facilities—and round-the-clock teaching faculty— means students have the opportunity to pursue personal projects in a way that’s not available at day schools.
Skills and experiences are nothing without relationships—especially when you need a little help—so our students are supported by a powerful system of guidance.
Grades aren’t used to judge students, but rather to coach them. Standards Based Grades (no letter grades, no averages) cover both Academic Achievement and Habits of Mind.
Our college counseling process includes expert counselors, frequent meetings, and a unique “college defense” presentation that ensures students make intentional choices.
Advisors are the “first call” for students who need help, and they serve as the primary contact for parents and families too. The advisory group is central to each students Tilton Experience.
Traditional parent-teacher conferences usually leave out the most important person. Not at Tilton.
Whether preparing for a test, improving study habits, tackling Calculus, or learning English, each student can build on their strengths. Personalized instruction or academic support can help each student unlock their own potential.
Navigate a world of change.
