Meet Our Latin Learners
Latin is fortunate to have an amazingly diverse community, however, our students share many enviable traits. They are independent thinkers, empathetic listeners, confident self-advocates and engaged participants. Surrounded by teachers who know them as individuals and as learners, they leave Latin with a life-long love of learning and a passion to make their mark on the world.
Hear what our students, parents, and teachers think about Latin and the amazing experiences they have.

ELEVATING CREATIVITY IN AP STUDIO ART
The upper school AP Studio Art class provides students with the opportunity to synthesize the knowledge that they’ve gained from other art courses and focus on the skill of idea development. The class is centered around a review-critique-revise process in order to produce a more compelling piece of work. Learn more about this community of artists in Art Teacher Christine Holloway’s class.

I understood the value of this education first hand when I went off to college. My persistence and strong desire to learn and connect with my professors was a reflection of the close relationships I made with my teachers at Latin.
