About The CLRC Classical Greek Program
CLRC Greek classes are offered at the elementary, middle school, and high school level. Introductory classes, which build a solid foundation in grammar and vocabulary, are available at all levels. The program culminates in college level classes reading the works of Homer, Plato, Herodotus, Demosthenes, Euripides, Sophocles, Thucydides and others. We emphasize vocabulary acquisition through online flashcards with audio recordings, friendly class vocabulary competitions complete with year-end prizes, and derivative work to help students find English words that are based on the new Greek vocabulary they have learned that week. CLRC Greek classes also focus on depth of grammatical understanding, and extensive reading to introduce students to the beautiful patterns, cadence, and literature of the Greek language. Middle school and high school students are encouraged to take the National Greek Exam.
“Hardly any lawful price would seem to me too high for what I have gained by being made to learn Latin and Greek.”
