Latin Classes

Why study Latin?  Well, until about 100 years ago, parents were not asking this question.  Latin was an important part of any quality education.  Over 60% of all English words, and about 90% of words with more than two syllables, are derived from Latin.  Latin, therefore, will greatly increase your knowledge of English vocabulary.  Studying Latin, and its very systematic and regular grammar, also increases a student’s analytical and problem-solving ability.  Besides all these benefits, learning Latin will open up the fascinating world of Ancient Rome, its culture, and literature.  Come explore with us!
