Welcome! Highlands Latin Cottage School Anderson is a classical, Christian homeschool support program serving the Upstate of South Carolina. We offer instruction in core subjects using the award winning Memoria Press curriculum through a one day per week traditional classroom experience. Our goal is to enhance the homeschool experience of our students by offering a challenging, traditional academic experience that enlivens the mind and refines the soul.
All instruction is provided in the classroom with parents providing homework help and individual assistance throughout the week. Class size is kept to a minimum to increase participation and ensure a high level of attention is granted each student. HLS Anderson meets for a full day of instruction on Tuesdays during the traditional school year (Mid-August to May) just off of Interstate I-85 at Concord Baptist Church in Anderson, making the school easily accessible for families across the Upstate of South Carolina. In all we do, we seek to engender a love for the Good, the True, and the Beautiful.
In partnership with parents, and guided by the Gospel, we seek 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 the Church.
Highlands Latin Cottage School Anderson aims to pass on the heritage of the Christian West to the modern student. We are Christian, classical, and traditional.
Classical education aims to teach wisdom—how to think—and virtue—what to do—through the learning of classical languages, reading classical texts, and study of the liberal arts.
Christianeducation anchors itself to the essentials of the Christian faith, maintaining belief in the goodness of Christian morality and the divine inspiration of the Christian Scriptures.
Traditional education takes place in an orderly, teacher-guided classroom with lessons focused on content mastery

The Memoria Press and CLSA Regional Conferences for the 2019-2020 academic year will explore education with the analogy of agriculture. Our utilitarian world has damaged farms and schools alike. But a return to first principles and forgotten practices can infuse life into our classrooms. Conferences will include plenaries, breakouts, and conversation with like-minded educators in your area. Put these dates on your calendar and make plans to attend the “Local Organic Education” conference near you.
