Thank you for your interest in enrolling in Boys’ Latin of Philadelphia! With a 12:1 student/teacher ratio, we offer an intimate learning community in which each young man is encouraged to be the “architect of his own fortune” by pursuing excellence across a range of endeavors.

Boys’ Latin enrolls by randomized lottery. As a public charter school, there are no admission requirements. Admission is open to all eligible students citywide - boys who live within the City of Philadelphia who are rising to either sixth or ninth grade exclusively. Applicants to all other grade levels served by the school will automatically be placed on the waitlist and based on capacity, the school may offer admission to applicants to these grade levels. In such an event, applicants will be admitted by grade level in the order of the grade level waitlist.
