Roxbury Latin is a small, independent day school for boys in grades 7 through 12 located on 117 acres in West Roxbury. In designing a vital program, Roxbury Latin is alert to what is best and most effective in educating boys, but also dares to define what is in their best interest. They are committed to the character development and rigorous academic training of each boy entrusted to them, and promise to know and love each student. Roxbury Latin cares, most of all, what kind of person a boy is. Roxbury Latin’s long-standing mission is to admit qualified students without regard to their family’s ability to pay. The school does not consider a family’s financial circumstances when making admission decisions and it meets the full, demonstrated need of all admitted students. Roxbury Latin’s comparatively low tuition and need-blind admission process ensures a diverse student body—one of the cornerstones of a Roxbury Latin education.
