Student Support | Tilton School

Student Support

We encourage our students to seek their own questions, but we help them along the way.

Forging a deeper relationship with students through frequent meetings.

Allow students to pursue their passions, for credit, using the extensive resources of campus and under the close guidance of supportive and engaging faculty.

Our advisory groups are at the center of the Tilton Experience. Advisors are the “first call” for students who need help, and they serve as the primary contact for parents and families too.

At Tilton, we believe that grades shouldn’t be used to judge students, but rather to coach them. Standards Based Grades (no letter grades!), covering both Academic Achievement and Habits of Mind provide students with critical insights on their own education. Our open gradebooks mean students always have an opportunity to learn more.

Through the Center for Academic Achievement (CAA) offers another level of support to students. Targeted, personal, and attentive, the CAA can help students turn struggles into triumphs.

We believe that when adolescents become aware of their own strengths and weaknesses, learning is more meaningful to them: a personalized experience awakens a drive to know more.
