Reasons To Learn Latin

Give your students the advantage of a classical education that opens doors to endless possibilities.

Boosts Academic Performance

Students engaged in learning Latin often see significant improvements in test scores. The analytical skills developed through Latin study directly contribute to better results across all subjects.

With over half of English words having Latin roots, Latin lessons enrich a child’s vocabulary at an astonishing rate. This not only aids in reading comprehension but also in writing and verbal skills.

The structure of the Latin language requires learners to engage in complex problem-solving. This rigorous mental exercise sharpens critical thinking skills, which are invaluable in any academic or life situation.

Aids in learning other languages

Knowledge of Latin paves the way for easier acquisition of other languages, especially Romance languages like Spanish, French, and Italian.

Deepens cultural and historical understanding

Latin classes offer a window into the rich world of classical literature, history, and philosophy, connecting students with the intellectual heritage of Western civilization.

Strengthens cognitive development

Early Latin education fosters cognitive growth, encouraging patterns of thought that support lifelong learning and curiosity.
