The mission of Boston Latin Academy is to prepare students for higher academic study by challenging them with a rigorous curriculum. With this foundation, Boston Latin Academy prepares students to be independent learners and contributing citizens in a diverse and challenging society.  The Friends of Boston Latin Academy, Inc., a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation, was incorporated in 2008 to support the educational and program objectives of the Academy. To donate to the Friends of BLA or to get involved as a volunteer, please contact the Friends' Board at the email
