Latin

Nearly half of English vocabulary comes to us from Latin, whether directly or filtered through the Romance languages. Our students not only learn to communicate in written Latin, they also explore the Roman culture and mythology surrounding the language.

Latin is offered to seventh and eighth graders. Students learn the basics of translation both from Latin to English and from English to Latin. Focus is also given to the massive influence that the Latin language has had on the development of the English language.

Students also have the opportunity to compete in area Certamens, where their knowledge of Latin and Roman culture is put to the test.
