The Silver Tower is located on the campus of Foxfire Academy, and houses all Level Eight prodigies and classes. Level Eight Prodigies are required to live within the tower for the duration of their studies, baring certain exceptions - in this sense, it is similar to a boarding school. The Silver Tower and The Gold Tower are separated from the rest of Foxfire to improve the concentration of Elite Prodigies. This isolation is held strictly — interrupting Elite study time merits a week of detention. Both towers are phaser-proof and elves are unable to light leap into it. The Silver Tower also contains the Hall of Illumination.
Other intelligent species are not allowed in the silver tower without exception — even bodyguards such as Sandor.
Under normal circumstances, prodigies from the lower levels are not allowed to enter the tower; certain exceptions may be made for when lower level prodigies are placed within elite classes only held within the Silver Tower. Such was the case of Sophie Foster, who The Council placed in a polyglot class taught by Lady Cadence Talle and an inflicting class taught by Councillor Bronte. The latter case required the class be conducted within the Silver Tower, as mentoring in the main campus is inappropriate for a Councillor. On those visits she required Master Leto, the Beacon of the tower at the time, to let her in, because she wasn't tall enough to reach the shared DNA panel. At that point she didn't know that Leto is the same person, or people, as Mr. Forkle.
- Master (currently Magnate) Leto Kerlof — served as the Beacon for the Silver Tower until Dame Alina became a Councillor and he was assigned to take over the role of principal.
- Cadence Talle — took over the role of Beacon for the Silver Tower after Master Leto became the principal.
- Prentice Endal — Was the Beacon at the time Jolie Ruewen was in Elite Levels.
