Financial Aid, Scholarships, and Loans

Tilton offers a  variety of financial aid options to make tuition affordable.

Tuition Payment Plans

Payment Plan A

In Plan A, families may elect to make full payment of tuition fees by July 1. For these families, Tuition Refund Insurance is optional.

Payment Plan B (Domestic Applicants Only)

Plan B provides a schedule of 8 payments beginning in May and concluding in December, managed through VC Pay. Participation in the Tuition Refund Plan is required.  

No Tuition Increases!

For each consecutive year a student is enrolled at Tilton School, tuition is frozen at the previous year’s level. For example, a four-year senior pays the same amount of tuition each year—set when they enrolled as a ninth-grader.


Enrollment Deposit

The enrollment deposit is non-refundable and credited toward the first tuition payment. Families pay 20% of the tuition balance as an enrollment deposit, rounded to the next highest $100.

Incidental Fees

Students incur small, incidental fees based on the specifics of their program and course of study. For example, books and supplies, student activities fees, technology fees, field trips, and arts materials.

International Student Fee

For students residing  outside the United States or Canada. this additional fee supports the additional communications and assessment needed for  international students.
