Highlands Latin is a private, classical, Christian school. Our goal is to provide our students with a classical education of the highest quality and to create a private school which is a model of excellence in both academics and Christian character.
In the tradition of western civilization, education and classical education have always been synonymous. Classical education can be distinguished from modern education, in that it does not neglect the important first step of giving students the classical tools for both intellectual development and for understanding their classical, Christian heritage.
Our faith statement is the Apostles’ Creed, the most ancient and widely accepted expression of the essential beliefs of the Christian faith. Highlands Latin teaches and upholds traditional Christian morality, and the Holy Scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God.
In the traditional classroom, a knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. The traditional classroom is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern child-centered classroom.

“I thought I would drop you a quick email to let you know how things are going for our family in switching to HLS. The best way I can express how well things are going is to let you know that [our daughter] has rediscovered her joy in learning. She is animated, curious, and imaginative when she is awake; perhaps even while sleeping. The method of instruction, the material, and the general atmosphere of the school has re-ignited a passion we were trying to keep kindled through fitting in various home studies and conversations. Now she is immersed in an education that is a natural extension of our home environment. Like all children, [our daughter] has a natural curiosity and a child-like wonder at the things of the world, whether socially, spiritually, or scientifically. HLS provokes that spirit in her and we love watching."

“Just wanted to say thank you again for the opportunity to be at HLS. My husband had lunch with [our son] yesterday and commented that he just loves the atmosphere and sense of friendship between the students and teachers. He loved how the students wipe the tables after eating; it’s just a small example of the attitude of service and kindness that HLS instills, and we love it. I’m so thankful that I can spend this morning with my boy, doing his schoolwork together instead of sending him off for a 40-hour school week! And that when he does go, it’s such a special place we’re sending him to. We are looking forward to this year! Thank you.”

"I have seen my son open up and love school again for the first time in a couple years. I think if we had not made the change to Highlands Latin we may have lost him to depression or worse. He was withdrawing and not himself. I am thrilled to report that he is now excited again about school and learning. He comes home and jumps into his homework and talks excitedly about the games you play and lessons you teach and how he wants to improve his knowledge so he can be more competitive. He loves recess again because he is with children like him with similar interests. He even loves the food! I appreciate the faculty and administration and can’t wait to see [our son] continue to grow this year. Thank you for giving us our son back.”
