1:1 Technology Program
Latin will provide a Chromebook (think basic laptop) to each enrolled student for the 2020-21 school year. 

This is often called a “one-to-one” or “1:1” technology program (1 computer for every student). These Chromebooks are the property of the school but will “live” with our students during both distance learning and when we are back on campus. Here we describe how we will get everyone a Chromebook and answer some questions. READ MORE

Athletics Program
Athletics Program and Policies 2019-20

At Washington Latin, we believe in the value of athletics for the entire student body. Coaches feel the responsibility not only to teach their players the skills and strategy behind the game but also to instill respect for the tradition of the game including honorable behavior. Learning to honor the game builds a sense of responsibility.
