High School Latin I
Latin I is designed for students with little or no previous experience with Latin. The course runs for two semesters and covers the Oxford Latin Course Part I.
Latin I covers 1st, 2nd, and 3rd declension nouns and adjectives; personal, demonstrative, and relative pronouns; adverbs, conjunctions, prepositions, all 4 verb conjugations, the irregular verbs sum, possum eō, volō, and nōlō, and the indicative, infinitive, and imperative moods.
Latin I is open to students from Grade 7 to adult or with permission of the instructor. Students should purchase "The Oxford Latin Course Part I - 2nd Edition."
Please check out our Latin I Overview video on YouTube! It features two recorded portions of an online class session. You’ll also find helpful information about the course textbook and other class resources, like vocabulary flashcards. We’ll also acquaint you with our Canvas learning management system, where students access homework assignments, quizzes, grades, and more.
A side note: the background music for the video, "Mountain Meadows," was composed, arranged, and entirely performed by our technical administrator and resident singer/songwriter/musician Matthew Gallatin.
"We’ve done Latin on our own, and then during high school with a few other online providers. Some of those classes have been good, but none match yours for excellent instruction, joy for the subject, organization, communication, and a truly sensible pace."

"Both boys are enjoying their studies so much this year, it has been a God send for us and a welcome change."
