FAST FACTS

The school offers a challenging academic program that prepares young men for the challenges of the 21st century. The school's motto, Esse Quam Videri - "To Be Rather Than To Seem" - emphasizes the development of one's integrity, courage and compassion for others and has been the core value of a Boys' Latin education since 1844. Boys' Latin welcomes young men from diverse backgrounds and educates them in a supportive student-centered environment. A low student-teacher ratio fosters positive relationships, thereby challenging each student to reach his maximum potential while empowering him to mature with an increasing sense of self-worth and an awareness of his responsibilities toward himself and his community.

Enrollment

Boys' Latin is comprised of 34% students of color. Our average size class is 14 students, with a student-faculty ratio of 7-1.
