Student Programs

The student programs below took place from 2000 through 2017. At this time, we do not have plans for future student programs. Our current work is to enable individuals, whether teachers or students, to create programs such as these for the younger students in their own communities. We hope the examples below will inspire you to consider planning a program of your own. Please visit our Classical Promise Grants page for details about the funding and curricular support available to our grant recipients.

Through our programs for elementary school and middle school students, we shared Latin and the Classical world with the next generation. Activities in Classical Art and myth excited their creativity; exploration of Roman culture gave them a glimpse into a different world; Latin lessons allowed them to read and speak like the ancients; and word study inspired them to build their English vocabulary.


During the 2014-2015 school year, we invite you to join us on a trip back in time to Ancient Rome! In a series of five lessons, students follow online videos with our instructors for an interactive and hands-on learning experience. Lessons include Children & the Family, Clothing, and more!


LatinSummer is an exciting two-week summer enrichment program that provides students a unique chance to learn about Latin and the classical world. Students explore Latin, mythology, and Roman culture, and will find timeless connections between the ancient world and their own. Held this year in Birmingham, Boston, Northern Virginia, and Rome.

Roman Explorers

Roman Explorers is a 3-4 hour outreach program in which elementary school students delve into the Latin language, Roman culture, ancient mythology, and English word study based on Latin roots. The program helps to strengthen academic knowledge and better prepare students to meet standards and to succeed on assessments.
