Students at the Latin III level, going into Latin IV (summer before being a Senior), have an opportunity to immerse themselves into the culture of Italy, in particular, Rome. This trip does not require any additional coursework as it is not tied to any academic credit. Rather, the Latin Italy trip is an educational, immersive, and fun extension of the students' Latin classes. The trip includes much of the culture studied in the Latin classes, with visits to the ancient sites like the Forum, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, and a host of other smaller less visited sites. We also visit the churches and museums of Rome, from St. Peter’s Basilica to the Ignatian churches of San Ignazio and Gesu. Florence and a couple medieval towns are also a part of the trip.
The cost of this trip is not
included in tuition. Any questions about the Latin Italy trip should be directed to Latin teacher, Mr. Jim Storad
