The Latin School
The basis for The Latin School comes from the oldest institution to bear this designation, Boston Latin School founded in 1635. This institution is a public school that bases its curriculum on the classical forms of its students seeking university entrance and the professions that would serve the good of society: law, medicine, the arts, and sciences. Northeast's Latin School offers an enriched classical education that promotes strong academic achievement and intellectual curiosity. Students have the opportunity to study Latin, and within Latin classes, ancient Greek. This program is designed for students who have a desire to go beyond the boundaries of high school studies and embrace the world of arts, literature, history, science, math, and technology according to their individual strengths and interests. Students are encouraged to participate in the wide variety of college-level Advanced Placement, AICE Cambridge, and Dual-Enrollment courses to facilitate their transition to university studies.
