Latin and Greek

Students can take Henle Latin I: Units 6-14, Henle Latin II: Caesar, or Henle Latin III Cicero if ready. Students with no Latin should take Henle Latin I: Units 1-5 or continue with whatever course builds on the Latin taken previously. Conversely, students who have completed Latin may wish to take a Greek course.

Classical Composition

High School Composition I or II is recommended, depending on prior studies. If your student is just starting composition and is a little weaker on grammar, take Foundations for English. Advanced students can take Foundations of Composition, but typically this class will follow High School Composition III.
