Application Process

Since admission to Tower Hill is competitive, during our usual application process we recommend prospective students and their families begin the application process in the early fall the year before entry. To be considered for our first round of admission decisions, our application deadline is January 5, 2018. Applications received after our deadline are considered as space is available. We notify first round decisions for Middle and Upper School on January 19 and February 2 for Preschool/Lower School.
