Schole Academy Latin Club

discimus vitae, non scholae

–Seneca the Younger, 65 CE

Salvete omnes! Welcome to the Scholé Academy Latin Club! This year, students in Latin Club will have the opportunity to expand their knowledge and appreciation of Latin through the exploration of conversational Latin, Roman cultural traditions, and classical practices that still impact the modern world today. Students will learn more about the mythology, history, and art of the ancient world while bolstering their growing knowledge of the written and spoken language itself. Whether through amicable Certamen competitions (Latin quizzing), or at-home constructions of ancient Roman ruins, students in Latin Club will benefit from the diverse exposure to many of classical civilization’s greatest treasures.
