During the third year of study, students read complex Latin narratives fluently and are able to express themselves with greater ease and length in written Latin. They explore and reflect on how the history of words, ideas, culture, and art has shaped our modern world, especially in relation to their travels in Washington D. C. Students concentrate on further strengthening and refining their learning skills in preparation for more advanced levels of language study, especially Latin, in Upper School courses. Upon completion of this course, students are ready to enter Upper School Latin at the second level. In the spring, students finish the portfolio, which they have been building continuously since sixth grade.
All Latin students belong to the California Junior Classical League and have the option to participate in local and statewide conventions.
