For the last several years, Tilton School has partnered with Portland, Maine’s Telling Room for its summer reading & writing projects. Tilton’s academic program has shared the Telling Room mission to empower students through writing and sharing “their voices with the world..., and to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for our students.”
If you attended summer camp as a child, chances are you still carry your experiences with you as an adult. Why not give your children the same experience? Here are just some of the important skills a camp experience introduces to kids.
At Tilton School, students are encouraged to imagine and create learning opportunities that require them to fully immerse themselves in the process. An Independent Learning Experience (ILE) is derived from student passions. With approval from the Academic Dean and guidance from a faculty/staff mentor, students mold their passion into an objective and project with specific, manageable, and measurable goals outside of their regular school work. A well-designed, well-executed independent learning project is its own reward. These projects extend student learning well beyond the basic.
