Plan for 2020-21
In 2020-21, Boys' Latin of Philadelphia will operate a 100% virtual program through Trimester III. The health and safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Our plan addresses this priority and the school's mission: preparing boys for success in college and beyond. Please learn more below.
