Latin strengthens academic pursuits!


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.
