The Value of a Boarding School Experience
One of the most important and influential aspects of every student’s Tilton Experience is our residential life program. The values inherent in living with other students and adults in a residential setting are every bit as important as the lessons taught in the classrooms, learned on the athletic fields or acquired in the art studio. We frequently find that residential life is the genesis of some of our students’ strongest friendships.
It is in the dormitories where our boarding school students learn how to live as responsible members of a community: respecting their fellow students and adults, treating the physical environment with care, recognizing the safety of the entire community, learning sensitivity to differences, and embracing a respect for all community members. Tilton’s residential life program is committed to ensuring that the students on campus feel safe, valued, and a part of something greater than themselves.
