Highlands Latin Lancaster is dedicated to the inculcation of wisdom and virtue in her students. Offering instruction two-days per week in subjects such as Latin, literature, and classical studies, HLS Lancaster seeks to form students through a thoughtful and thorough treatment of the great works of classical literature as well as an exploration of the classical civilizations and their languages.

Mission Statement

In partnership with parents, and guided by the Gospel, we strive 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.
