Upper School


Tower Hill’s Upper School is a vibrant place of discovery and growth. We believe in the limitless potential of young people and consider it a privilege to share their journeys with them. Our student scholars, artists, athletes and servants live our motto, Multa Bene Facta, many things done well. And our teachers, coaches and staff devote themselves to encouraging students’ existing passions, introducing them to new joys and fostering their positive character development throughout their time in the Upper School.

Tower Hill Upper School students are involved in original research projects, carefully mentored writing and experiential learning through Tower Term, an interdisciplinary opportunity for teachers and students that provides a chance for a deeper dive into interesting subjects. Upper School students can choose from over 100 electives including: Literature of the American South; You Are What You Eat: Food Memoirs and Identity; Epidemics in Society; and Sports and Modern America.

Each student signs a pledge affirming they have both read and will commit to the Honor Code and the standards set forth in this handbook.
