We believe that developing a boy’s moral character is critical to preparing him for our complex world: a world where it has become increasingly challenging to discern truth and act with integrity. Each boy is actively taught to uphold the values of our School and to embody our motto, Esse Quam Viderito be rather than to seemto ensure that what he says is what he does.

Students are held to a high standard of personal conduct, and acting with integrity and honesty is part of the fabric of the School. Members of our community challenge each other to go the extra mile to do what is right, rather than what is easy, which fosters respect, generates trust and builds a strong sense of responsibility to our community.


Founded in 1844, Boys’ Latin School of Maryland is an all-boys private school serving boys in grades K-12. World-class faculty, challenging academics, and character development remain the hallmarks of a Boys’ Latin education. The outcomes speak for themselves, Boys’ Latin graduates attend top colleges and universities and are prepared for the real world and ready to make a difference.
