It is through that same spirit of generosity that a bridge was built 25 years ago to connect our north and south sides of campus. Since then significant new buildings and renovations have occurred including the additions of Ehrhardt Hall (lower school), the Gelston Athletic Center, the Alumni House, Hopkins Hall and Sinclair Hall (upper school), the Iglehart Center, the new Middle School and the list goes on.
You may know that the tuition paid by our students' families covers about 85% of the actual cost of a Boys' Latin education. The remaining costs are covered through the thoughtfulness and generosity of generations of BL supporters, each of whom made their own distinct contribution to the legacy of the school we all love.
These contributions have added, and continue to add, immeasurably to the BL experience. They help do so much: to provide compensation for our exceptional faculty; allow for the maintenance of our beautiful campus; offer tuition assistance for deserving students; and ensure that we have the means to offer all our students unparalleled educational experiences.
Put simply, donations from people like you help sustain Boys' Latin, and all gifts make a difference. In fact, these are not only gifts, they are investments-investments in the kind of true excellence only BL can offer.
There are many ways to give to Boys' Latin. The job of our Advancement Team is to present you with the options and the best fit for the kind of gift you would like to make. Gifts over $100 are recognized through the following giving clubs:
