Question tiling above the fiberglass shower

I have installed a 48"x35"x76" 3 piece shower unit by Aquaglass. I now want to tile from the flange up to the ceiling. I have not secured the unit to the rough out yet. How and where do I want to put the cement board to tile up to the ceiling?
Thanks for help and maybe links with pictures?

Once the tub is properly secured to the studs, use durock tile board over the nailing flange of the tub unit.

When you set tiles, keep tiles at least a 1/4" from the top of unit and caulk this area instead of grouting. This will allow for flexibility, and this way you will not have to worry about the concern of grout cracks.
