Why You Belong at Latin

You may think it is our excellent academics, supportive community, and dedication to a personal, inquiry-based, and inclusive education, but what makes the Latin experience unique is YOU. 

There are so many ways to teach. Even more ways to learn. In the end what really matters is how we get there. And at Latin School Chicago we get there together. For more than 130 years, we put students at the heart of everything we do. We’re committed to seeing everyone within these walls succeed and reach their full potential through an educational experience that will empower them to tinker, to make mistakes, to ask questions, to change how they see the world around them, to be a Latin Learner.  On our never-ending quest for excellence, community, and integrity, we don’t tell our students who they should be but inspire them to explore who they already are by taking education beyond what can be read on the pages of a book and bringing it to life. Here, we know the work we do today will shape how we see tomorrow because one day our students will be our innovators, decision-makers, leaders, problem solvers. Latin isn’t just a school, it’s an experience. And what makes the experience unique is you.


Students are well versed in the "power of yet" and the value in continuing to grow, defying expectations or limitations.

- Latin parent

Latin should never change how comfortable it makes us feel. Which means that we aren't afraid to make mistakes.

- Middle school student

Participating in middle school and high school productions taught me so much about empathy and creative expression, and as I got older, I realized how much those skills in particular prepared me for leadership in the Latin community and beyond.

You Will Thrive in College and Beyond

Latin measures its success by ensuring that each student is prepared with the academic and emotional skills needed to thrive in college and beyond.

College counseling is a four-year process as individualized as the rest of our curriculum. Our counselors work with students to match their interests and strengths with the best-fit schools. Each student’s college search is an opportunity to learn about one’s own educational and social needs and to develop decision-making tools that will help shape future choices both in and out of the world of academia.

Experience Latin


Every member of the Latin community is a Latin Learner: students, families, faculty, staff, alumni and our partners in the city and around the globe.

Inspired Artists

Art encourages students to adopt the mindset of a learner by exploring new ideas, embracing creativity and trying something new.

Excellent Academics

Our vision for educational excellence is to reinforce the value of an exemplary liberal arts education that makes learning inquiry-based, personal and inclusive. Our educational approach will expand each Latin Learner's capacity for purposeful learning - whether in our school, our city or our world.  

Disciplined Athletes

Latin’s interscholastic program strives to develop confident, enthusiastic and disciplined athletes who use their full physical potential and learn the value of teamwork and the importance of sportsmanship. We strive to develop leadership and ethical behavior in our athletes, while encouraging a life-long love for sports and fitness.
