About Tilton School
Tilton School, founded in 1845, is an independent college preparatory boarding and day school located in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region with an enrollment of 257 boys and girls in grades nine through postgraduate. Our mission is to challenge students to embrace and navigate a world marked by diversity and change. Central to Tilton School’s culture is a belief in the “power of potential.” In a close-knit community of students, faculty, staff, and administration, Tilton’s unique educational program challenges students to discover, develop and advance their personal strengths and passions, while gaining the skills, knowledge, and values essential to personal and professional success. Students are challenged in all facets of life on campus with appropriately high standards and a rigorous curriculum requiring them to be active participants. Class sizes are small, averaging 12 students, with a student-faculty ratio of 6 to 1. Students are encouraged to reach their full potential outside of the classroom through strong programs in athletics, arts, theater, extracurricular offerings, and student leadership positions. Tilton School’s 160-acre campus includes a new state-of-the-art academic building, a new senior girls’ dormitory, and extensive athletic facilities.
