Latin School of Chicago is a selective private elementary , middle , and high school located in the Gold Coast neighborhood on the Near North Side of Chicago, Illinois . The school was founded in 1888 by Mabel Slade Vickery and is the oldest independent day school in Chicago. The school is a member of the Independent School League

The school was designed to provide students with a rigorous college-preparatory education in the classical tradition, with a curriculum that was heavily influenced by Classical studies and the study of the Greek and Latin languages, hence the name “Latin School." The Latin language is still taught in the middle and upper schools today.

While it was started as a neighborhood school, Latin School currently is home to more than 1,100 students from approximately 70 ZIP codes throughout the Chicago area. The school awards more than $3 million in need-based financial aid each year.
