The Roxbury Latin School
Roxbury Latin is a democratically gathered community, a school where individuals from a great diversity of backgrounds are brought together by shared goals and common ideals. Character formation, at the heart of who we are and what we do, means we aim to educate boys not just for their own intellectual gains, but so they might understand their responsibility to contribute meaningfully and positively to the whole, and, ultimately, to society. The ongoing concern for fairness, for justice, for how we can positively affect various communities are traits the faculty of Roxbury Latin aim not only to teach, but also to model and insist upon for all students. We also work to help boys discover the joy of knowing and understanding others whose circumstances, beliefs, and interests are unlike their own.
