About

Highlands Latin Houston is a unique homeschool support program. We offer a teacher-led, traditional classroom experience for homeschool families. Students and teachers gather twice weekly for all course instruction, and lessons and studying are completed during the remainder of the week at home. In addition to presenting a rich educational experience, we seek to foster a sense of community among students and families who value a classical, Christian education.

Students in grades K – 12 will receive instruction in subjects such as Latin, classical studies, literature, composition, and science. We utilize the Memoria Press Curriculum, and classes are led by enthusiastic, knowledgeable teachers. In all that we do, we aim to present the Good, the True, and the Beautiful to students in a way that will guide not only their studies, but also their development as people.

HLS Houston Uniform Policy 

Our dress code is simple and straightforward. We believe that how students dress has the potential to directly impact learning for all. We request the following:

  • Bottoms: Students may wear khaki or navy pants, Bermuda shorts (no jeans, spandex leggings, or athletic wear). Girls may also wear “skorts” / scooters, jumper dresses, or polo style dresses in either khaki or navy.
  • Tops: Students may wear navy, light blue, or white polo shirts. Students may also wear a white Peter Pan collar blouse (girls) / white button-down shirt (boys). Short and long sleeves are both okay. Square bottomed shirts may be worn untucked. If shirts are tucked in, students should wear a dark, solid colored belt.
  • Clothes may be purchased at any retailer selected by the family. There will also be an account established with French Toast for the convenience of parents, and a Highlands Latin Cottage School – Houston polo shirt with our crest will be available for purchase.

HLS Houston Code of Conduct 

  • Students should come to Highlands Latin Cottage School-Houston ready to be a productive member of the leaning community.
