NATIONAL LATIN EXAM RESULTS

Covenant’s Upper School students participated in the National Latin Exam in March 2013.  Sponsored each year by the American Classical League and the National Junior Classical League, the exam is taken by over 150,000 students from the U.S. and twelve other countries. The majority of students taking the National Latin Exam are in high school, since that is when many students begin their study of Latin.  A smaller number of middle school and college students also take the exam.

Covenant's 6th grade students took the Introduction to Latin exam, which assumes knowledge equivalent to high school introductory Latin courses.  Two students in the class received scores in the Gold Summa Cum Laude category and received certificates.

Covenant's 7th and 8th grade students took the Latin I and Latin II exams, respectively, which assume knowledge equivalent to college elementary Latin courses.  Awards were:
