Educating to the Highest Standards of the Classical Tradition
Highlands Latin Schools are 1-4 day schools modeled after Highlands Latin School in Louisville, Kentucky. In partnership with parents, and guided by the Gospel, each school strives to educate students to the highest standards of the classical tradition, so that they may grow in knowledge, wisdom, and the love of Our Lord, and more ably use their gifts in the service of others, and for the glory of Christ and his Church.
In the tradition of western civilization, education and classical education have always been synonymous. Classical education can be distinguished from modern education, in that it does not neglect the important first step of giving students the classical tools for both intellectual development and for understanding their classical Christian heritage.
The faith statement of Highlands Latin Schools is the Apostles’ Creed, the most ancient and widely accepted expression of the essential beliefs of the Christian faith. Highlands Latin Schools teach and uphold traditional Christian morality, and the Holy Scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God.
In the traditional classroom, a knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. The traditional classroom is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern child-centered classroom.
