Founded in 1919, Tower Hill School provides students with a challenging and exhilarating educational experience. Built on a strong traditional foundation, the school’s personalized and innovative approach nurtures curiosity, motivation and a lifelong love of learning.

Holding the reputation as a top academic school in the region, Tower Hill empowers students to develop their own strengths and pursue their passions. Exceptional academics are balanced with the development of creativity through the arts, healthy attitudes through athletics, and responsibility through service to the community. Students benefit from numerous leadership opportunities, and seniors earn admittance to highly selective colleges and universities.

Tower Hill embraces and celebrates diverse cultures and beliefs, fostering a warm, inclusive community. Students of color constitute 32 percent of the enrollment, including Upper School students from abroad. Global Initiatives, Service Learning and Social Justice programs give students meaningful chances to broaden their horizons from preschool through graduation—and beyond.

Tower Hill’s early childhood program begins at age 3, with two teachers per classroom to maintain low teacher-student ratios. The Lower and Middle School programs provide strong preparation and smooth transitions to the Upper School, which also welcomes an influx of qualified students from surrounding schools for 9th Grade.

A comprehensive, competitive athletic program offers 22 varsity sports and boasts 66 Delaware state championships. State-of-the-art facilities over 44 acres include two turf fields, two grass fields, a baseball diamond, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor tracks, two gymnasiums and a lighted stadium.

Tower Hill offers international travel, enrichment programs, after school care and summer camps. Applicants are considered for any grade and encouraged to apply for tuition assistance, with more than $2.5 million available annually.
