A co-educational independent school serving ages 3 through Grade 12, Tower Hill offers international travel, enrichment programs, after school care and summer camps.

Points of Pride: Exceptional preschool-grade 12 academic curriculum, the program's cornerstone is supplemented by requirements in athletics, the arts & community service. In keeping with the school motto Multa Bene Facta — Many Things Done Well — Tower Hill engages students in a variety of innovative educational experiences, while empowering them to develop their own strengths and pursue their passions.

Tower Hill’s competitive athletics program has earned 67 state championships and offers 22 varsity sports. State-of-the-art facilities include two turf fields, two grass fields, a baseball diamond, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor tracks, two gymnasiums and a lighted stadium.
