Highlands Latin is a Christian School. 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.
Highlands Latin warmly welcomes families of other faiths but we ask that you respect our distinctive Christian identity. In all of our instruction we are respectful of other faiths, while humbly maintaining the truths of our Christian faith.
Highlands Latin is a Classical School. The intensive study of Latin in the grammar school years develops the minds of students as no other subject can. Students who have learned how to learn with Latin become better students in all other subjects. The study of classical languages and the Greek/Roman classics provides a path to wisdom and knowledge that cannot be attained by any other method. 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.
Highlands Latin is a Traditional School. Although schools have tried many experimental innovations during the last century, none have been able to duplicate the success of the traditional classroom.
In the traditional classroom, a knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. Classrooms are quiet, orderly, and disciplined. Lessons are incremental, content is age-appropriate, and students learn the important skill of quality written work completed in a timely manner. Homework is moderate and is for the purpose of practicing or preparing for a lesson. The traditional classroom is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern child-centered classroom.
Highlands Latin Mission. In partnership with parents, and guided by the Gospel, we seek to educate students to the highest standards of the classical tradition, so that they may grow in knowledge, wisdom, and the love of Our Lord, and more ably use their gifts in the service of others, and for the glory of Christ and his Church.

- February 09, 2014 - Highlands Latin is a great school where the teachers are really engaged with each student. I regularly receive emails from my child''s teacher when he did something well, but also about specific areas where he needs more help at home. I feel like my son''s teacher is working with us every day to education him. - Posted by Parent
- February 28, 2012 - Parents need to know that HLS offers a highly religion-focused, extremely-structured, teacher-centric education in a regimented, discipline-enforced environment. - Posted by Parent
