“A classical education is a pearl of great price and worthy of the highest efforts of our teachers and students because it aspires to give not only knowledge, but wisdom.”

In the tradition of Western civilization, education and classical education have always been synonymous. Classical education can be distinguished from modern education, in that it does not neglect the important first step of giving students the classical tools for both intellectual development and for understanding their classical, Christian heritage.

Our faith statement is the Apostles’ Creed, the most ancient and widely accepted expression of the essential beliefs of the Christian faith. Highlands Latin teaches and upholds traditional Christian morality, and the Holy Scriptures as the divinely inspired word of God.

In the traditional classroom, a knowledgeable, enthusiastic teacher carefully leads students into an understanding of each subject. The traditional classroom is consistent with human nature and the experience of many decades has demonstrated its superiority over the modern child-centered classroom.

Our Town

This “play within a play” tells the story of a few folks who lived in a small town in New Hampshire in the early 1900s. Written by Thornton Wilder, this Pulitzer prize-winning play portrays everyday life and the challenge it is for humans to cherish every day of life. The Highlands Latin School Drama Troupe is excited to bring Our Town to the CityPlace Expo Center La Grange, KY.
