Highlands Latin School is an excellent choice for students who enjoy the challenge of learning.
Our Mission Statement
In partnership with parents, and guided by the Gospel, we strive to educate students to the highest standards of the classical tradition, so that they may grow in knowledge and wisdom, and in the love of our Lord, and more ably use their gifts in the service of others, and for the glory of Christ and his Church.

About Our Program
The HLS curriculum is a coherent whole in which each year of study builds upon the skills and knowledge of the previous year. Families should not be deterred, however, by the cumulative nature of our classical curriculum. With assistance from our staff and some summer preparation, motivated students can enter our program of studies at any grade level and be successful.


Admissions Process
HLS is now accepting applications for the 2022-23 school year.
