Headmaster's Message

Friends –

On behalf of our entire community, welcome to Boys’ Latin. Our motto, Esse quam videri or “to be rather than to seem,” encourages each student to grow to his fullest potential and to become his best, authentic self. At Boys’ Latin, this growth happens in a single sex environment, with small classes, where each boy is uniquely known, cherished and loved. 

Our history tells you that we are the oldest, independent, nonsectarian school for boys in the state of Maryland. In addition, our lived experience displays that we are a supportive community purposefully focused on what is best for boys.

We remain committed to being a small school. Classes have ten or so students, and faculty members know each boy for his strengths and how to leverage those strengths to overcome challenges. Our talented faculty are not just teachers or advisors. They are mentors, coaches and often life-long friends.

We believe that boys learn best in an environment where they have the confidence to explore new and different ideas. Hands-on experience and real world applications make learning come to life for our boys. 

Our focus is beyond just a rigorous academic experience but with a broader view for the whole boy to develop and emerge. A Boys’ Latin education combines outstanding academics, arts, athletics and co-curricular activities along with our own character development program that focuses on the formation of core values – integrity, courage and compassion.

While this website provides you a glimpse of what makes our school so special, there is no substitute for a personal visit. I look forward to welcoming you to Boys’ Latin, where good boys grow to be great men – one person at a time.

All the best,

Christopher J. Post
