In partnership with parents, we seek to educate students to the highest standards of the classical tradition, so that they may grow in knowledge, wisdom and more ably use their gifts in the service of others. We constantly strive to help every individual student to be their best selves and be better prepared for the lives that they choose. Indeed, to be armed with the skills to have unlimited choices and be able to carve out their own futures.

Highlands Latin is a Classical School
The intensive study of Latin 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 heritage.

Traditional Environment
Although schools have tried many experimental innovations during the last century, none have been able to duplicate the success of the traditional environment. 
In the traditional environment, a knowledgeable, enthusiastic instructor carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. The environment is 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. The traditional environment is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern classroom.
