Tower Hill School is ranked third in the state for the highest number of state championships for private and public schools. The school is a member of the Delaware Independent School Conference (DISC) of Wilmington and vicinity. Other member schools are St. Andrew's School, Sanford School, Tatnall School, Wilmington Christian and Wilmington Friends School. The DISC is one of the oldest competitive conferences in America. Tower Hill is also an associate member of the DIAA state organization. The Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association governs most aspects of our athletic program from grades 7-12.
Athletic competition is an integral part of the educational and developmental process of our students, and many important lessons are taught through athletic experience. Therefore, athletics are a fundamental part of the total curriculum at Tower Hill, fulfilling our motto of Multa Bene Facta — Many Things Done Well. The objectives of coaches and teachers are identical: to help young people reach their fullest potential intellectually, emotionally and physically. Accordingly, sportsmanship — the demonstration of appropriate conduct, honest rivalry and graceful acceptance of the outcome — is as important as the full development of athletic skills. Critical to these teachings is the expectation that our community as well as our athletes will demonstrate respect for everyone involved in athletic competition.
