Geneva Latin students in sixth through twelfth grades recently received results from taking the 2021 National Latin Exam. The National Latin Exam is a test given annually to Latin students across the United States and around the world. The exam recognizes students’ ability to work with the grammar, syntax, history and culture of the Latin language.

The exam focuses on the student’s ability to read and comprehend Latin as outlined in the American Classical League’s Standards for Classical Languages. By acknowledging students’ personal accomplishments, the test is meant to promote the study of Latin and to encourage individual students. Students at Geneva begin the study of Latin in third grade and may participate in the National Latin Exam beginning in sixth grade.

“Latin at Geneva helps produce within students an appreciation for a culture and language far removed from our own times and geographical surroundings. It gives students a deeper awareness of how language works and how other cultures approach matters. It is difficult to imagine a program of study that more effectively prepares students for launching their academic careers past high school graduation,” Dr. John Rosheger, Geneva’s Language Department head, said.

The following students in sixth through twelfth grades were awarded for their achievement at the various levels on the 2021 National Latin Exam:
