    My son is the luckiest child alive. He is graduating in June from the finest high school in the country. Our six years have been fantastic and oh what a fine education he received. We are very poroud to have been associated with this fabulous school. We will miss RL.

    Simply the best academic environment you can find. You don't need to prepare for the workload because the boys who are accepted are already doing exceptional work

    Many consider Roxbury Latin to be the greatest independent school in the nation. It is the oldest in continuous existence. It has the largest endowment of any day school. It has been ranked the best feeder to the Ivy League. It consistently ranks first among all American schools in mean and median SAT scores. And its admissions committee is more selective than that of any other secondary school. RL as it is known has about 40-50 boys per class out of whom it expects quite a bit beyond the classroom including athletic artistic and community involvement. The environment is extraordinarily challenging but satisfaction rate as measured by alumni giving is among the highest in the nation.
