Highlands Latin is an organization dedicated to the establishment and growth of classical Christian cottage schools. With Highlands Latin School in Louisville, KY as its model, the organization provides an outline for the foundation and formation of a flourishing cottage school program. With campuses across the country, homeschooling students meet one or two days a week for a teacher-led, traditional classroom experience. All instruction is provided in the classroom, with students completing lessons and homework during the rest of the week at their homes with the support of their parents.
The goal of this program is to support homeschooling families in educating their students to the highest standards of the classical tradition, while aiding the students’ growth in knowledge, wisdom, and the love of Christ, that they would be better suited to use their gifts in service of others.
The curriculum at the center of the Highlands Latin Cottage School program is Memoria Press’ Classical Core Curriculum. The curriculum focuses on the cultivation of wisdom and virtue through meditation on the Good, the True, and the Beautiful. This is accomplished in two ways: first, through training in the liberal arts; and secondly, through a familiarity with the great books and the great thinkers of the Western tradition. This curriculum is constructed with two central ideas in mind: mastery and simplicity.
Mastery of content is the goal of every program within the Classical Core Curriculum. Students are guided through the material in a way that emphasizes mastering a concept before moving on to a new one. The ability to immediately recall information and explain ideas is the end-goal of each program within the Classical Core Curriculum.
Simplicity is central to the design of each program. Rather than building the curricula full of extras and dress-ups, Memoria Press provides a robust, thorough, and focused exploration of each subject as it is studied. The purpose is to present a product that is highly accessible and effectively taught.

With the Apostles’ Creed as our statement of faith, it is Christianity that provides the foundation for all Highlands Latin does. All programs are governed by a Christian worldview with a deep desire to honor God and edify the people who utilize the product. The words of the Apostle Paul in Colossians 3:17 provide the basis for everything Highlands Latin attempts to do:
“… whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”
All Highlands Latin Cottage School campuses are accredited by the Classical Latin School Association. Visit their website to find out more about the mission and purpose of CLSA.
