We understand that the world is changing. New careers are emerging and with those careers come a need for a new set of essential skills and the ability to adapt to the market and community around you.
Tilton Schoolprovides a personalized learning process that uses an authentic, intentional investigation and assessment of a student’s aptitudes, skills, interests, and strengths. We believe that when students become truly aware of their own strengths and weaknesses they are more engaged in setting goals and paths that are meaningful to them. An opportunity for self-discovery serves as a link to confidence, independence, and joy. This personalized experience awakens a drive to know more, specifically in areas of significant interest and passion, resulting in a greater depth of knowledge.
As new students join Tilton School, their skills, interests and strengths are assessed no matter what grade they are entering. Using this insightful information, students work individually with their advisor to create a personalized Guided Program of Study (GPS).
Created for and by each student in partnership with their advisor, the Guided Program of Study allows students to discover who they are, what their talents and strengths are, and how to apply those talents and strengths to become a leader not only in the classroom but in every aspect of their life.
Faculty and students work together to explore and investigate student’s interests through learning outside of the classroom. Our students are connecting to and realizing their passions by getting hands-on, exploring real-life issues, and connecting with the larger community.
A Tilton School education provides our graduates with a powerful sense of purpose that ensures that no matter how the world changes, they will have the essential skills and motivation to positively contribute to the world as lifelong learners who find joy and fulfillment in creating meaningful change.
Students are not just challenged to reach their own power of potential, they gain the skills needed to lead others and impact the world.
