A coeducational day school serving students JK-12



Hands-On, Inquiry-Based Learning

Here you will feel at home.

One thing we hear students and alumni say is that Latin feels like a second home to them. This sense of belonging begins in the classroom and extends to athletics, clubs and activities. Two qualities our faculty and staff share: an unmistakable warmth and affection for their students and a commitment to ensuring that everyone feels successful. The relationships that students build with each other, their teachers, coaches, counselors, advisors, and deans are at the heart of the Latin experience.

Roman Traditions
Our school traditions and annual events are ways for us to connect our community . Here are just some of the ways we come together:

  • Convocation
  • upper school retreats
  • Homecoming pep rallies
  • Romans Run
  • MLK day of service
  • middle school day of service
  • lower school Olympics
  • Say it with Sweets
  • Alumni Week
  • mentor programs
  • buddy activities

Our students celebrate each other's achievements, talents, and differences in countless ways at morning assemblies, student art exhibits, plays and performances, during senior projects, class days and pep rallies.

Here you will learn how to learn.

For 127 years Latin has been a school community in which every member shares a love of life-long learning. True to a liberal arts tradition, a Latin education is not simply a list of skills to practice, but an understanding of why we learn and how we use our abilities. Our experienced teachers craft unique learning experiences and execute them with hands-on, immersive activities. At Latin, our students and teachers challenge themselves and each other. Struggle is honored as much as growth and viewed as an essential part of the educational journey.

Here you will learn your way.

At Latin, every child is known as an individual and a learner. Small class sizes and a student-centered approach allow teachers to understand the way each child learns best and how he or she can reach individualized measures of success. Latin's staff of counselors and learning resource specialists make our support of each student comprehensive, giving kids the energy and confidence needed to actively engage in learning.
