Latin is always learning.

 

 

Planning for Latin's Future

Why are we engaging in Facilities Master Planning?

Latin’s Strategic Design includes four important choices that focus on the most essential elements of the student experience: Learn, Engage, Advance and Develop.

DEVELOP

In Develop, our community articulated priorities related to Latin’s physical spaces, and how they can contribute to achieving our vision of making learning personal, inquiry-based and inclusive for every student.

Specifically: Enhance or redesign Latin's campus and facilities and align resources to achieve our vision for educational excellence.

 






We ask our community:

"How can we improve our physical assets and advance our excellence while being the best stewards of our dollars?"

In this process, we study our past.

And we plan for our future.

What will be the outcome of the facilities master plan?

  • The master plan will align the Latin’s strategic plan and educational program with physical space, while looking toward the future.
  • The master plan will consider options for renovations or additions on the existing campus and will possibly include options considering proximate properties.
  • The master plan options will be tied to the realities of construction phasing and order-of-magnitude costs.
  • The master plan is a long-term view of facilities and may be implemented over several years.
  • The master plan options will be presented to the Board of Trustees for consideration of implementation.

 

Who is involved?

This process will include voices and perspectives from all parts of the Latin community as well as partners with extensive experience building learning spaces.
