You can set it as high as you want, Karen. But if the person standing underneath is only 5' tall, very little water will hit the ceiling.

If I wanted to protect the ceiling without setting tile over it, I'd find a good quality paint, or Kilz, and paint that only on the ceiling.

Keep in mind that whatever water hits the ceiling is very unlikely to penetrate and cause damage because of gravity. Usually mildew growth is the issue, and that goes back to what CX mentioned earlier about the exhaust fan. Drawing excess moisture out of the room is critical to preventing mold and mildew.
