High School Greek VI:  Advanced Reading

High School Greek VI is a more advanced Greek reading class for students who are prepared to read at an advanced undergraduate level. The pace is faster and more difficult texts are chosen.  Some students will move into Greek 6 directly from Greek 4.  Others may prefer to spend two or three years in Greek 4 and 5 before moving on to the Greek 6 selections.  If you are interested in the class but unsure if you are sufficiently prepared please  CONTACT US.

Reading selections vary from year to year but may include the texts listed below.

Dr. Slatin has some flexibility in her schedule and we expect to be able to schedule this class at a time that will work for all those interested in the class. If you are interested in CLRC’s Greek 6, please click the "I'M INTERESTED!" button below and we will contact you with more information and scheduling options.
