Teens crave independence, but parents love family time.

Get the best of both worlds with five-day boarding school!

Tilton is now offering five-day boarding for families. This program supports the opportunity to participate in a boarding community during the week while traveling home for family time on the weekends. Five-day boarding is a great opportunity to encourage independence and growth in your child, without sacrificing quality time during their high school years.

During the week, five-day boarding students live on campus and participate in the every day activities of boarding school life. That's right –– Tilton faculty and residential staff will get your kids to class and to practice—and ensure their room is clean, too!

On the weekends, five-day boarders return home. This program gives students the experience of living away from home while also bringing families together on the weekends, so they can make the most of their time.
