Meet Our Alumni

We are fortunate to have an amazingly diverse community of independent thinkers who leave Latin with a life-long love of learning and a passion to make their mark on the world. Meet our changemakers.

We are always on the lookout for more alumni of note. If you know of a Latin alumnus/a who should be on our list, please contact us at alumni@latinschool.org. Be sure to scroll down for our Romans, Friends & Countrymen video series, featuring in-depth interviews with alumni doing interesting and innovative work.
