The Mastery Approach

All schools teach through content-driven courses. But Tilton goes further, pushing students to learn essential skills, encouraging them to explore areas of self-discovery—and providing expert guidance all along the way. We call our program the Mastery Approach, and it’s designed to leverage the unique opportunities of boarding school to ensure that students are learning modern, relevant skills through every aspect of campus life. In classrooms, studios, and laboratories—in dormitories and even on the playing field—Tilton students are encouraged to choose the path that is most engaging and exciting for them. Explore the program’s three major components:

Essential Skills teach beyond content and equip students for a lifetime of self-directed learning.

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.

Every student is different, and our personal approach brings expert guidance to every aspect of the student experience.
