A Summer Program Like No Other

The Tilton School Summer Institute (TSSI) is an innovative project-based learning experience in the beautiful Lakes Region of New Hampshire. Open to students age 11 - 14, our 3-week program (day or overnight) combines Discovery Tracks, Residential Living, Collaborative Partnerships and Outdoor Adventures to create a dynamic summer experience your child will never forget.

Simply put–We change lives. TSSI provides an individualized experience during a critical time in student and adolescent development; encouraging campers to get out of their comfort zone through a unique combination of hands-on learning, service, and summer fun!

At the conclusion of the Tilton School Summer Institute program, your student will receive an Individualized Strengths and Skills Profile (ISSP) which details their strengths, areas of growth, and action items for the upcoming year to build upon. The ISSP compiles information from teacher, advisor, and coach observations, a personality-based evaluation, and the Naviance StrengthsExplorer®.
