College Acceptances

Our student body encompasses a diverse range of academic, social, ethnic and cultural backgrounds, and the colleges that our students choose for continuing education are equally diverse. As of 2018, 86% of Tilden Preparatory School students plan to attend a 4-year college or university, and 8% plan to attend a community college.

 

“Our daughter is a proud graduate of Tilden who went on to UCSC. Tilden is an amazingly well run school brimming with talent and warmth and school spirit! The individualized teaching and daily progress reports take the load off the kids and the parents. It is both a challenging and encouraging environment and the teachers impart really useful skills for the rigors of a UC!”
