The school offers a rigorous academic program that prepares young men for the challenges of the 21st century. The school's motto, Esse Quam Videri - "To Be Rather Than To Seem" - emphasizes the development of one's integrity, courage and compassion for others and has been the core value of a Boys' Latin education since 1844. Boys' Latin welcomes young men from diverse backgrounds and educates them in a supportive student-centered environment. A low student-teacher ratio fosters positive relationships, thereby challenging each student to reach his maximum potential while empowering him to mature with an increasing sense of self-worth and an awareness of his responsibilities toward himself and his community.
Boys' Latin is the oldest independent, nonsectarian college preparatory school for boys in Maryland.
Boys' Latin is comprised of 24% students of color. Our average size class is 14 students, with a student-faculty ratio of 7-1.
