Planning is underway for Tower Hill’s Centennial, which began with the current academic year as we celebrate our 100th year of operation. The school year has been filled with “centennialized moments”—the Centennial Tree Trim, Regional Alumni Receptions, the Centennial Field Day—and culminate at the Centennial Celebration Sept. 20-21, 2019, when the school turns 100.
