Academics at Roxbury Latin
Roxbury Latin fosters the development of academic excellence by means of a demanding curriculum. We seek to instill in our students a capacity for rigorous analysis, disciplined reflection, and lucid expression. Our goal is for each student to experience the excitement and joy that result from deep thinking and hard work, and to help him to develop the skills that will serve him well in college and throughout his life.
We take pride in being known as an academically rigorous school, and we regard as centrally important the classroom and all that happens there. We expect a great deal from our students, and the faculty encourage boys to strive for excellence. Yet we also recognize and value the lessons that are learned beyond the classroom. We stand ready to help boys in any way that we can, as allies, not as adversaries. Roxbury Latin boys are willing to work hard, and we commit ourselves to supporting them in their pursuits.
