Founded in 1844, The Boys’ Latin School of Maryland is an all-boys independent school serving boys in grades K-12. At Boys’ Latin, each and every one of our students is known -- for who he is today, and all he will be tomorrow.
Our purposefully small environment allows our teachers to get to know each and every boy, learning what brings him joy and what drives him. We intentionally teach boys to think critically, question assumptions, and work collaboratively. So, whether our boys are challenging each other to build a championship-winning robot, collaborating on a multivariate calculus problem or debating current events, they are building the 21st century skills they need to succeed in life.
Boys' Latin welcomes students from diverse backgrounds and educates them in a supportive student-centered environment.
Boys' Latin is committed to being an inclusive community. In 2020-2021, the School awarded merit scholarships or financial aid to just over half of qualifying students.
A low student-teacher ratio fosters positive relationships and allows our teachers to meet the needs of every boy, from the strongest learners who require extra challenges to those who require more support. Our personalized approach to education allows our boys to develop confidence - confidence to be successful in college and beyond.
We leverage the power of a small community to create a big stage for our boys. Because unlike larger schools where students compete for limited spots on teams, in plays, or within student government, we create space. Space for boys to explore new talents and invent new clubs of their own. Space for many leaders, rather than just a few.
Boys’ Latin’s faculty is second to none. As varied as their life experiences are, our teachers all have expertise in teaching boys. Given the chance, every one of our boys will eagerly talk about how their teachers take the extra time and make the extra effort to help them. How teachers reach out to them, get to know them personally, and are always available when they need them to be. How teachers inspire them to think critically, work collaboratively, and question assumptions.
