Advanced Placement® Latin is a rigorous, college-level course designed for students who intend to take the Latin Advanced Placement® exam. Students will follow a College Board-approved syllabus as they study selections from Caesar’s Gallic Wars and Virgil’s Aeneid. Students will focus on the grammatical details of the texts while also studying these works as literature as they discuss content, theme, context, rhetorical devices, etc. Through class discussions and writing assignments, students will learn to analyze a text through critical and reflective reading. Students who do not intend to take the AP® Latin exam but who are interested in a thorough study of Caesar and Virgil are also invited to enroll.
