Roxbury Latin is a school for boys who have the intellectual potential and the personal determination to do something great with their lives. A co-founder of the International Boys’ Schools Coalition, the School is a close-knit community focused on the needs and aspirations of individual boys. Our programs capitalize on the universal rhythms of boys’ development and the conditions required to help boys thrive.

Boys in a boys’ school are free to explore the full range of their personalities and potential and to engage in creative pursuits, and they can discover and express their capacity for compassion and for nurturing support. Part of our mission is to develop young men who can and will participate sensitively and collaboratively in the world beyond.
Our small community guarantees that each boy is known and loved. Teachers provide individual and personal support, encouraging each boy to explore new interests beyond the familiar and comfortable and to step into an activity he might not have chosen for himself. In accepting different challenges, a boy begins to cultivate deep interests that may turn into lifelong passions. In the process, he learns about the world, society, his peers, and himself.
