Classical Grammar - Christian Content

The best Latin language course on the market

Enhanced Education

Latin plays an important role in helping to develop literacy skills and English vocabulary skills for students at all levels. Additionally, through the study of Latin, students can build a solid base for the subsequent study of Romance languages such as Spanish, French, and Italian.

Classical Instruction

A true classical education gives a student the tools of learning, not through superficial subject completion but through the use of focused concentration on just a few subjects to develop key skills.  Our focus is on creating lifelong learners who are able to learn for themselves. They themselves will fill in any “gaps” as they continue to grow and mature.

Historical Foundation

Students learn the language through the exploration of the histories of Italy, geography, the Vulgate, and various other historical aspects of the birth of Christ and Christianity.  More than just grammar and rhetoric, students learn to use the language in a context-appropriate, Classical manner.

About Our Methods

The classical education movement has received a strong reception within the homeschool community in recent years, and with good reason. Classical methodology, when taught properly, teaches students how to think and learn for themselves. As the benefits become widely known, more classical programs are being written and marketed to homeschool families than ever before. But while they may appear similar on the surface, classical programs can in fact have quite different approaches.

Our Books

Latin Books

Volume I contains sixteen chapters and is accredited by the University of California as one year of high school Latin, although it was designed for middle school.  Students review English grammar and see how similar it is to Latin grammar.  A brief history of Italy and life in Rome are shown in the story in Latin of the Roman centurion of the Bible and his family.

Volume II continues with the family’s move from Gaul to Rome.  More of the background of Rome and its history and culture are taught, as well as an additional vocabulary of another 410 words.  In this volume the family learns about the birth of Jesus and also hears Jesus give the sermon on the mount.  More and more grammar is taught.

Volume III completes all the Latin grammar, while the complete life of Christ is presented.  The many biblical topics include Gnosticism, What is a Real Man?, Giving Thanks, the One and the Many, the Gospel Road.

Volume IV Honors includes poems by Ennius, Catullus, Pliny, Lucretius, Horace, as well as the continuation of the Roman family’s life as they begin to move to Britain after Christ’s resurrection.   More authors are included including Venerable Bede, Caesar, and Cicero, and ends with an introduction to
The Aeneid.

Volume V AP meets all the requirements to help students pass the AP Latin test, including the required sections of Caesar and The Aeneid, Cicero’s First Oration Against Catiline.  Other authors  studied are Horace, Catullus, Cato, Seneca, Ovid, Augustine of Hippo, Martial, Pliny, Livy, Druids, as well as more Scripture, the Roman military, Roman customs, and the geography of Gaul.
