Tilton School

30 School St, Tilton, NH 03276

Founded as a secondary school for boarding and day boys and girls, the school was founded in Northfield, across the Winnipesaukee River from the present campus. A fire in the 1860s led the school to move to its current location. Over the years, Tilton has fulfilled different functions, according to community need: It has been a coeducational boarding school, a boys’ boarding school, a public school, a female college, a junior college, and a secondary school with both college and general courses. In 1939, the school stopped serving as the local high school and became a strictly independent boys’ boarding and day school. General diploma courses were dropped in 1958, as the school focused solely on college preparation. Tilton reinstituted its girls’ division in 1970. The college preparatory curriculum, which qualifies graduates for many competitive colleges, includes Advanced Placement and honors courses. A learning center provides academic support, and the school schedules weekly extra-help periods and small-group advisor meetings. The +5 program requires participation beyond the school day in arts and culture, team athletics, outdoor experiences, community service and leadership activities. Located on a 153-acre tract in New Hampshire's White Mountains and Lakes Region, the school's campus includes fields, trails, woodland, streams and ponds. Several ski areas are a short distance away.
