Why Latin?

  • In studying Latin, students learn the structure of all language. This is especially helpful in understanding English.
  • Latin roots are in 50% of all English words, greatly enhancing students’ English vocabulary.
  • It is proven that verbal SAT and GRE scores are higher among students who have studied Latin.
  • 90% of the words in the “romance languages” (Spanish, French, Italian, etc.) come from Latin, so learning Latin promotes mastering additional languages in the future, and with much less effort.
  • Latin is intertwined and found everywhere! Students will cross-reference it in many subjects such as history, science, literature, logic, and the Bible.
  • Study of the Romans is included in Latin class. This is important because much of our culture today is derived from this ancient Republic.
