Highlands Latin School is a classical Christian school with a goal to nurture young people in both intellectual growth and the highest ideals of Christian character.
The goal of a classical education is to develop the mind of a student through Latin and Mathematics, and to develop wisdom and virtue through a careful reading of the classics. The goal of our Christian education program is to help students achieve Biblical literacy, a knowledge of church history, and a strong faith and Christian consciousness. We desire to create a school culture that is a model of excellence in both academics and Christian character.
In all of our programs we strive for continuity and mastery learning. Classical education also focuses on teaching age-appropriate material through age appropriate methods. At HLS we follow the classical trivium which emphasizes memorization and accumulation of facts in the grammar school; evaluation, analysis and integration of information in the logic stage of middle grades; and the articulate expression of ideas through the written or spoken word in the rhetoric stage of the Upper School.
JrK - 2nd Grade
Reading, writing, spelling, and arithmetic are the foundations upon which the tower of learning is built, and they are given the highest priority in K - 2nd grades.
3rd - 6th Grade
The Lower School (grades 3-6) continues to reinforce the important academic and social skills emphasized in the primary (K-2) school.
7th - 12th Grade
The Upper School program (grades 7-12) is an excellent choice for motivated students who enjoy the challenge of learning and are pursuing a college preparatory course of study.
