“To all who seek to learn and all who love to teach”

We believe that education is a training of character, and character is the intersection of intellectual development and moral integrity. 


Over the past two years, Washington Latin’s Board of Governors and school leadership have worked to create a strategic plan for the school, identifying goals for each of the school’s essential characteristics.
