A coeducational day school serving students JK-12



Romans Raise & Revel 

Union Station Great Hall | Saturday, April 13, 2024


Join us for a night of celebration, philanthropy, and revelry! 

Romans Raise & Revel brings together our entire Latin community for one single cause: to ensure that deserving students from all corners of our city have access to a world-class education. This year's fundraiser has an ambitious goal to raise $1.7 million. With your generous support, we can reach our goal and make a Latin education possible for hundreds of student. 

Proceeds from Romans Raise & Revel not only go toward tuition – they also help families afford lunch, transportation, equipment, supplies, Project Week funding, and access to other signature events and co-curriculars that make Latin so unique. This year, we’re thrilled to revel with you in person at Chicago's historic Union Station.
