Congratulations on your Acceptance to the Bro. Joseph C. Fox Latin School!
Congratulations on your admission to The Bro. Joseph C. Fox Latin School! Your academic proficiency reflects the potential to be successful in our academic program that is designed to provide you with a strong foundation as you prepare to enter high school.
The Latin School, a division of Kellenberg Memorial High School, is well known for its many programs that are designed to encourage your growth as a whole person. Your success, upon your enrollment, depends on your desire to grow on academic, spiritual, and personal levels. In offering you admission, we are expressing our belief in your ability to make an important contribution to our school and a commitment to your personal growth. We are confident that you will thrive in an atmosphere that educates the hearts and minds of its students.
You will be joining the Kellenberg Memorial Family at a very exciting time in our school’s history. Due to our ever-expanding spiritual activities, we recently purchased a new retreat house named “Stella Maris” on the Great South Bay and have just opened our newly-renovated science labs to accommodate our high school science classes and an ever-growing list of STEM activities.
The opportunity for all of our eighth-grade students to take Earth Science is just one of the stepping-stones to lead you along a path to success in high school. We have just added two new turf fields, in addition to our existing ones, as well as tennis courts. We like to say that the Latin School is “a friendly start to something big,” and you can certainly see why since you, our newest and youngest Firebirds, will be warmly welcomed into an environment that will nurture the growth and independence preparatory to a successful high school experience.
