Language Philosophy 

In accordance with Classical Academy standards, all children will learn Classical Greek and Latin. This allows them to read the great ancient authors in the languages in which they wrote. All children will also be introduced to Russian from the time they enter preK. We encourage our parents to see to it that their children, if they are not of Russian heritage, acquire the language of their ancestors, be that Finnish, Greek, Georgian, or some other language. The study of languages has consistently been shown to lead to better educational outcomes for those students who pursue them than for those who do not. It is our intention to offer additional modern languages in the high school grades, such as French, Spanish, and/or German.
