High School Level (8th grade and up)

High School classes require a greater level of commitment on the part of the student. Courses at this level involve not only learning new concepts but also being able to analyze them and place them within the larger context of a worldview. Students should expect more rigorous homework assignments, weekly exams and long-term projects. Preparation for related college-board exams is a by-product of some high school level classes. Classes require the purchase of textbooks and other related materials.
Shakespearean Drama Tuesday 3:30 - 5:00
Yes! Shakespeare can be fun! It’s meant to be performed, not just studied behind the desk. Students will learn different aspects of acting skills, choral recitation, and play analysis with an emphasis on Shakespeare’s texts. A Shakespeare play will be chosen and performed for friends and family at the end of the school year. This class is for students in grades 9-12 and mature 7th and 8th graders. Minimal to light homework mainly involves memorization, poems, sonnets and Shakespeare’s texts during rehearsal period. This class will enable you to fulfill a high school fine arts elective credit and make friends with a great group of passionate students at the same time.
Latin I Tuesday 12:30 – 3:00 pm
This introductory course to Latin language and Roman culture includes basic Latin vocabulary, grammar, and translation, along with attention to English vocabulary building through study of Latin derivatives. With the user friendly approach of Katherine Birkett’s inexpensive text, The Great Latin Adventure I and II, we will cover first conjugation verbs and first declension nouns in order to introduce three basic verb tenses and complementary infinitives, functional recognition and use of the six cases of nouns and adjectives, prepositional phrases, direct and indirect objects, predicate nominatives, adverbs, and more. Completion of this course will prepare students for more advanced Latin grammar study, translation and reading using the classical approach of Wheelock’s Latin or other approaches to the study of Latin. This Latin course is also a good foundation for learning Romance languages or any other world language.
