Tuition Refund Plan

The Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) is an insurance plan that protects a portion of the unused tuition in the event that a student leaves the School prior to the end of the academic year because of dismissal or withdrawal. Refunds from TRP first address any outstanding balance a family may have with the School.

The fee for TRP is 2.2% of adjusted tuition. Adjusted tuition is defined as the tuition less Tilton School Financial Aid. TRP is optional only if tuition is paid in full by July 1st. If the monthly plan option is selected, TRP is mandatory and is included in your bill.

We chose Tilton School because we felt a connection from the first moment we arrived on campus. Our daughter has blossomed; the rigor of scheduled study halls, the academic support and the warmth of the faculty and staff have made a huge difference in her academic and personal growth.
