Boys' Latin of Philadelphia
A Charter School Serving 500 Students in Pennsylvania
Boys' Latin of Philadelphia — a charter school serving 800 students in grades 6-12 — is the only all-boys public school in Pennsylvania. With its mission of developing confident and independent learners to become active and engaged global citizens, the school needed a website that would help with both meeting enrollment goals and informing current families.
The charter school's new, custom website tells a compelling story to prospective families through vivid photography, infographics, video testimonials, and a strong value proposition. The flexibility of the Finalsite platform makes it easy to create new website pages with parent and student resources, as well as share important news and calendar updates with ease.
Since Boy's Latin uses its homepage to attract and recruit new students and teachers, incorporating those voices on the homepage was a must. The custom-designed testimonial panel slides to reveal photos of current students and alumni, who share specific reasons why they love Boys' Latin.
