WILLIAMS SCHOLARS PROGRAM
The Williams Scholars Program at Boys’ Latin recognizes tenth and eleventh grade students who demonstrate outstanding academic achievements and a proven commitment to the life of the school. The program is designed to be both challenging and inclusive, rewarding students for scholarly excellence and their service to the community.
Modeled after similar programs at the collegiate level, the Williams Scholars Program provides students with exceptional learning opportunities throughout the school year and over the summer months. Williams Scholars enjoy access to luncheons with guest speakers and enrichment funds for summer academic programs. Each year, Williams Scholars use their funding for a wide variety of intellectual and educational pursuits. Students have attended programs in robotics, sports industry management, psychology, public speaking, and everything in between, providing them with real-world learning opportunities as well as preparing them for college and beyond.
“It is a great opportunity for our boys to deeply engage in an area of interest to them. For example, one of our students used this opportunity to travel to Costa Rica, where he did student tutoring. This is only one of the countless ways our boys have expanded their knowledge in meaningful ways,” said Brian Mitchell, Boys’ Latin’s upper school head.
Established in 2006, the Williams Scholars Program is named for Jack Williams, Boys’ Latin’s headmaster from 1962-1978. The program honors Mr. Williams’s dedication to Boys’ Latin and emphasis on scholarship.
