Roxbury Latin School 羅克斯伯里拉丁學校 (麻省 MA)

Features

The Roxbury Latin School is a small, independent day school for boys in grades 7-12, located on a spacious 117 acre campus in West Roxbury, MA. Founded by John Eliot in 1645, in the reign of King Charles the First, it is the oldest school in continuous existence in North America.

Roxbury Latin's endowment and the generosity of its alumni, parents, and friends enable the School to maintain a distinguished faculty, to charge a relatively low tuition, and to admit and enroll boys without regard to their parents' ability to pay. The opportunities afforded by the School are therefore available to a uniquely diverse student body from all segments of the greater Boston community. In stark contrast to other prestigious schools, Roxbury Latin has a comparatively low tuition and a policy to admit and enroll boys without regard to their parents ability to pay ensures a richly diverse student body.
