A coeducational day school serving students JK-12

Upper School Curriculum


We create global citizens

A multi-faceted global education program enables Latin students to become globally aware and understand the interconnection of cultures; embrace differences and show empathy that reaches beyond national boundaries.

Nurtured in the classroom and through a rich variety of co-curriculars, students’ global competencies are enhanced by Project Week and a Global Experience Program that focuses on exchange opportunities, language immersion programs, and international partnerships.

Capstone Studies Program

Seniors can apply to participate in a year-long Capstone Studies Program, which allows them to create an interdisciplinary project that links their research to Chicago community resources, or present a senior project that is not strictly academically focused.

Project Week

Upper school students spend one week each March exploring the world outside of the classroom during Project Week. Students can choose to learn about literature, art, technology, or the Civil Rights movement, participate in community service or outdoor education, travel the world or get to know their city in a new way.
