Latin strengthens academic pursuits!

LINDA (MAGISTRA) SHEA- EDUCATOR

Students and parents are pleasantly surprised to discover how Latin strengthens other academic pursuits such as math and science as well as broader life skills. As co-director of a private summer academy, I enjoyed developing curriculum that seemed like recreation while delivering substantial core-aligned material. Though my students have won awards and scholarships for their performance on tests in the subjects I teach, I consider the true measure of success to be the enthusiasm for learning they carry with them even after the course has ended.
