Tilton is committed to the belief that good schools have the responsibility to set high standards and then do everything in their power to help students reach those expectations. Thus challenge and support are two key elements of the academic program.
We challenge students academically with appropriately high standards and a rigorous student-centered curriculum that requires them to be active participants in their learning. Classroom activities call on students to be effective critical and creative thinkers, to integrate separate disciplines and to explore the larger moral, spiritual, and ethical questions of their work.
We support student learning by being advocates and by providing a structured learning experience. We show students we are advocates by conveying three messages on a consistent basis:"This work is important; you can do it; and we will help you."

We place students at the center of The Tilton Experience, and enroll young people capable of both contributing to and benefiting from the school. We are committed to recruiting and supporting faculty and staff who are dedicated, through both education and example, to the school’s mission. We seek and expect a genuine partnership with parents as we work together in challenging and supporting our students. While encouraging the alumni to be active in their school’s life, we are committed to honoring them and their historic relationship to the school.
Education: We value the active pursuit of knowledge and the growth of intellectual curiosity. We provide a rigorous academic program designed to prepare graduates to be successful college students and contributing members of society. We support various pathways to learning; the acquisition of genuine understanding is our goal. We are committed to the principle that all students can excel. We believe that by providing a broad range of learning experiences, students develop problem solving skills and self-confidence while becoming independent and critical thinkers.
Community: We believe the well-being of the whole community is founded on the fundamental principle of respect. We explore the moral, ethical, spiritual, cultural, and ecological dilemmas of our time. By doing so we promote a just and healthy school community and wider world.
