The National Latin Exam, sponsored by the American Classical League and the National Junior Classical League, is a test given annually to Latin students across the United States and around the world. The leveled tests cover grammar, comprehension, mythology, derivatives, literature, Roman life, history, geography, oral Latin, and Latin in use in the modern world.
As part of a classical, Christian education, students study Latin for five years at MHA, which is located in Mason.
