By combining personal challenge with individual support, Tower Hill is a college-preparatory school committed to building in its students a foundation for lifelong learning. Tower Hill believes that diversity in all aspects of school life broadens and enhances the educational experience. In keeping with its motto Multa Bene Facta—Many Things Done Well—the school provides a challenging program, engaging students in a variety of educational experiences, while allowing them to develop their individual strengths and pursue their passions.
To emphasize its core values—active citizenship, personal integrity, collective responsibility, team building and collaboration, and mutual respect—the school encourages each student to develop a sense of personal worth and to recognize, understand and accept the individuality of others. While cognizant of its Christian roots, Tower Hill embraces and celebrates diverse cultures and beliefs, fostering a strong sense of community.
Tower Hill School prepares students from diverse backgrounds for full and creative engagement with a dynamic world. Each student is provided with an educational experience that emphasizes the development of an inquisitive, discerning and critical mind; the value of being creative and aesthetically sensitive; the appreciation of physical well being; the ability to collaborate and to function as part of a team; and the growth of character.
Tower Hill is bound by an understanding that our students are expected to take an active part in school life and, later on, life in the adult world; to take chances within this caring community; to learn from their experiences; and then, to enrich the world in which they live. We believe that a private school education is an all-encompassing affair, and we trust that this website will allow you to get a glimpse of how we, as a community, bring our best to everything we do, every day.
