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.
