Latin Students Excel on National Classical Etymology Exam
Latin Students Excel on National Classical Etymology Exam

On Nov. 13, 2019, 15 Upper School students who are enrolled in Latin II through AP took the National Classical Etymology Exam (NCEE), which comprises multiple-choice questions about the origins of English words derived from Greek and Latin. The students did very well on this exam, earning a number of awards for their performance on it.

Congratulations to these Ravens who earned recognition on the NCEE!
