Our High School Program offers access to knowledgeable instructors, a rigorous curriculum, and classroom training and accountability. The Highlands Latin Cottage School is a CLSA accredited program. High school students are free to enroll in classes as an a-la-carte option that supplements further coursework at home.
Students interested in our High School Diploma Program can apply after the completion of their 8th grade year, but must apply prior to January 1st of their sophomore year.

Each student graduating must earn at least 28 credits, 16 of which must be completed in our Cottage School classes.
