FROM THE ADMISSIONS DIRECTORS

Any parent who's gone through finding the right school for their child knows the process can be confusing and difficult. That's why our admissions team focuses on two things: helping our prospective families get to really know Boys' Latin, while we get to really know them.
It doesn't take long for us to get excited about prospective candidates, each with distinctive talents, that we know would be a perfect addition to our school community. Some bring academic firepower. Others a fantastic personality. Certain boys we already know will significantly impact and benefit from our performing arts. Others will further shape our athletic program. Most are a unique combination of these things, and more.

We also know that many of our incoming students could have gone anywhere, but choose BL because their admissions experience - whether that's shadowing a student or just walking around campus with their parents - reiterates what they've been told by someone they trust about BL. There's something truly special about our community - we're a family, and our boys are brothers for life.
Our goal is to show you why Boys' Latin is the right school for your son, for all the right reasons. We can't do this without getting to know you first. Get in touch with us, so we can get started.
