The study of Latin in primary school is a time honored tradition with a long track record of success. At STCS, in 2nd thru 8th grade, Latin is taught as a living language. We want our students to feel comfortable with Latin, believing that the best way to develop Latin readers is to develop their conversational skills. Our focus in studying Latin is primarily cultural. Through years of consistent Latin training, our children are being oriented in a powerful way to the classics of Western Literature.
