Written by on January 31, 2020

A. Yes, all Latin students grades 9-12 are required to take the National Latin Exam. This prestigious 40 question multiple choice exam is taken both nationally and internationally. While students’ scores on the exam will not be factored into their average, this exam is an excellent way to showcase their Latin skills and knowledge. Latin Scholars who place on the exam will be recognized in the spring at 9th Grade Awards and Recognition Night. This exam is meant to inspire a sense of pride and accomplishment for all of the hard work students have done this year. Our students are extremely successful on the exam and it provides one more way for students to be recognized for their academic achievement at the start of their high school career.
