Latin School of Chicago:
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 grade twelve. Latin, the oldest independent school in the city of Chicago, was designed to provide students with a rigorous college-preparatory education 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 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 and more.
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).
The Latin School of Chicago provides its students with a rigorous and innovative educational program in a community that embraces diversity of people, cultures and ideas. Latin inspires its students to pursue their passions and lead lives of purpose and excellence.

Desiring a mutually supportive relationship with the larger community, the school endeavors to be a good neighbor and to partner with people outside the school in the fulfillment of its mission.
Latin School of Chicago is committed to learning as an act of transformation. Rigorous and innovative, transformative learning also requires multiple and often competing points of view, reflected in the varied experiences and perspectives of the school’s many constituents. In keeping with the Principles of Best Practice for Equity and Justice set forth by NAIS, Latin respects, affirms, and protects the dignity and worth of each member of the school, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender expression, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, age, socio-economic background or physical challenge.
The pursuit of intellectual growth is complemented by a concern for the moral, physical, psychological and aesthetic development of each student. Community service and affective education, performing and visual arts, physical fitness and athletics are all integral parts of the Latin curriculum.
