Philosophy and Mission

Our Philosophy

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.
