Boys’ Latin students benefit from a wide array of partnerships with corporate, nonprofit, and community organizations that empower them in their learning outside of the classroom.
Learning happens best when there is a strong partnership between educators, students, families, and the outside community. Deep engagement with valued partners and stakeholders ensures that our boys become actively engaged global citizens in our interdependent world. Learn more about the outside opportunities offered to Boys’ Latin students below.
North Carolina Outward Bound School
Students travel on outdoor expeditions that teach technical skills like navigation, camp craft, and the basics of backpacking and rock climbing. As students develop these skills in challenging situations, they also learn the value of teamwork, compassion for others, and the pursuit of excellence. We began partnering with the North Carolina Outward Bound School in 2009. Since then, on average, 8 Boys’ Latin students participate in the program each year.

Philadelphia Financial Scholars
Boys' Latin students, teachers, and families partner with Philadelphia Financial Scholars to acquire the tools needed to develop financial skills, build greater wealth, and achieve financial empowerment. The program, born out of a partnership between FS Investments and the University of Pennsylvania and piloted at Boys' Latin, features in-class financial literacy education, after-school entrepreneurship workshops, a summer business accelerator program at The Wharton School, and a nights-and-weekends curriculum. Since its inception, the program has reached more than 1,500 students, many of whom are Boys' Latin students. To learn more, please visit Philadelphia Financial Scholars.
Summer Search partners with students to support them in navigating and challenging systemic barriers to post-secondary education, workforce participation, and financial stability. As a partner school, each year Boys’ Latin nominates a group of sophomores to participate. Successful nominees are paired with a full-time staff mentor and receive full scholarships to participate in experiential learning excursions in the U.S. or abroad the summers following their sophomore and junior years. Approximately, 8-10 Boys’ Latin are selected annually for this mentor and college advising program. To learn more, please visit Summer Search Philadelphia.
