Getting to School

The Roxbury Latin School is located at 101 Saint Theresa Avenue in West Roxbury—the southwestern-most neighborhood of the City of Boston. The school is easily accessible via public transportation, though there are many options available in getting to school each day.

School Bus for City Residents and South Shore Residents

Roxbury Latin provides bus service for boys from the city that some students living in Roxbury, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Mattapan, and near South Station find convenient to use. There is a nominal charge to families for this bus service.

New in 2023, we have expanded our bus service to include access for students living south of Roxbury Latin, offering two lines to service families in the following areas:
1. Route 3 Corridor: Hanover/Weymouth/Braintree
2. Route 24 Corridor: Easton/Stoughton/Randolph/Canton

Public Transportation

The Needham Line commuter rail West Roxbury station is only a block from the corner of Centre Street and St. Theresa Avenue. This line is convenient for boys coming from downtown Boston (South Station, Back Bay, the South End, and Roxbury) or from Needham.

Roxbury Latin is located on the MBTA bus line. From Forest Hills Station take either the Charles River bus or the Stimson via Belgrade. Get off on Centre Street at St. Theresa Avenue. The School is at the top of the hill on the right.
