All Highlands Latin School Aiken students study Latin because it develops the mind like no other subject. Prior to the 20th century, it was the norm for students to achieve mastery of Latin grammar before high school. The classroom materials used to teach Latin grammar (Prima Latina, Latina Christiana, Lingua Angelica, and the First Form Series) are each the most widely used Latin texts in the country for their ages. For Latin literature, we use Henle II and III for Caesar and Cicero, and Pharr’s Aeneid to prepare for the AP Latin Exam.
Foreign language courses in Greek, Spanish, and French are also available to our students.
