Why Choose Highlands Latin School

In considering the value of investing in your child's education at HLS, it would be worthwhile to consider the answers to the following questions.

  1. Are your values being supported or thwarted by your child's current school?

  2. Does your child feel safe to express his/her opinions in school?

  3. Is America and the ideas behind our republic being portrayed fairly?

  4. Are capitalism, socialism, communism, democracy and republic presented honestly and discussed without bias on their merits?

  5. Is your school implementing critical race theory or 1619 Project curriculum?  Do you support that?

  6. Is my child learning how to form well educated opinions, to be confident in their ability to thoroughly analyze data, and to consider all sides of an argument and to draw their own conclusions?

  7. Does my child's school see themselves as a partner with me in my kid's education, or as the authority over it?


  • HLS believes a classical education is not just for the elite or smartest students but is a centuries old tried and proven successful system for all students.

  • Instruction does not leave out the foundational first things of phonics, Reading, Writing and Arithmetic

  • Students are systematically taught the stages of learning, and how to learn rather than what to learn.

  • Students work towards mastery of a comprehensive curriculum instead of to tests based on the broad state standards.

  • Students are taught the methods, practice and history of science where a wonder of creation is fostered.

  • We continually strive to present an honest and accurate representation of history, including primary sources when we can, presenting a comprehensive, in-depth study in our upper grades of certain historical times, rather than cherry-picking key facts to know. 

  • The Christian world view serves as the great thread that weaves all learning, wisdom and virtue together.


  • Small Class Size: Class sizes are kept to a minimum to increase participation and ensure a high level of attention is granted each student.

  • Character and Virtue are discussed and esteemed so a student will gain confidence in their ability to rightly discern right vs. wrong and truth vs. fallacy.

  • We strive to form the mind and character of the student to follow the example of Jesus Christ, the hero and savior of mankind, to practice the seven cardinal virtues, and to avoid the seven deadly sins.

  • Our teachers create an atmosphere where the open discussion of ideas is encouraged, Students learn how to debate ethically while showing their opponent respect.   

  • Our schedule allows for parents to spend more time with their young children and for students to have more time to pursue interests/hobbies outside of the classroom.

  • We honor our student's time with their families and caregivers and strive to use classroom time to its fullest so that students bring home minimal homework in the evenings.

  • We believe in rigor and discipline in order to achieve goals outside of themselves, balanced by times of rest and playfulness to promote and sustain a student's sense of wonder and reward for hard work.

  • Uniforms provide students with a sense of focus and purpose at school and serve as a great equalizer among students.
