Our Core Values and Beliefs

The mission of Boston Latin Academy is to prepare students for higher academic study by challenging them with a rigorous curriculum. Our Classical and Liberal Arts education allows students to become successful participants in a diverse and challenging society.

We believe:

  • Teachers must collaborate effectively to engage students in meaningful learning experiences.
  • Students must be responsible and respectful to each other and to the larger community, as well as be actively engaged in building a safe, caring, and inclusive community.
  • Students must be given opportunities for leadership and decision-making to become informed participants in a democratic society.
  • Students must analyze and synthesize content in order to access higher level thinking skills, using a variety of media, in preparation for global competition.
