Given our convenient Northside location, we typically serve families on the Northside of Chicago, from Lake View, North Center, Lincoln Square, Old Irving Park and even Evanston.
We show our commitment to gender equity and diversity in a variety of ways - such as in our culturally rich curriculum and in our recruiting practices where we commit to hiring teachers and admitting students without regard to race, religion, gender or other characteristics.

Latin School of Chicago located adjacent to Lincoln Park on the North Side is an independent, co-educational college preparatory school for students in junior kindergarten through to grade twelve. Latin is the oldest independent school in the city of Chicago. The school was designed to provide students with a rigorous college-preparatory education in the classical tradition, with a curriculum that was heavily influenced by classical studies and the study of the Greek and Latin languages, hence the name “Latin School." Latin is still taught at the school today and is offered from sixth-grade onwards.
This academic load is balanced by a wide array of outside opportunities to play sports; be in the Middle School play; participate on a competitive math, science, or chess team; work on the student newspaper; perform in the band or chorus; be a member of student government; do community service; or participate in any number of other activities.
Latin School of Chicago is accredited by the Illinois State Board of Education, by the Independent Schools Association of the Central States (ISACS) and a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS).
