North Penn Latin Students Earn Gold and Silver Honors

Congratulations to the North Penn high school students who took the National Latin Exam this year on their outstanding performance. Of the 95 students in grades 10 through 12 who participated, a phenomenal 71 earned awards for distinguished performance, with 34 earning either a Gold Summa Cum Laude or a Silver Maxima Cum Laude honor.

“Our academicians did a literally (well, figuratively, in fact) smashing job on this annual intellectual smorgasbord of cumulative classical cognition,” said NPHS Latin teacher Jonathan Rockey. “I am gratified by the solid performance and genuine, perceivable effort of the entire Latin cohort, with particular recognition to NPSD middle school Latin colleagues at Penndale, Pennfield and Pennbrook,” he continued. “The Latin Legion is very much alive and doing great things.”

The National Latin Exam, sponsored by the American Classical League and the National Junior Classical League, is a 40-question, multiple-choice test with a time limit of 45 minutes, offered to students on seven levels. On the Introduction to Latin, Latin I, Latin II, Latin III, Latin III/IV Prose, and Latin III/IV Poetry exams, there are questions on grammar, comprehension, mythology, derivatives, literature, Roman life, history, geography, oral Latin and Latin in use in the modern world. The Latin V-VI exam contains two Latin passages as the basis for questions on grammar, comprehension, historical background, classical literature, and literary devices.
