Latin improves English reading by up to 150% and one Latin root can be the key to 20 or more English words. The camp is being put on by the Academy's high school Latin club which includes volunteers with experience at several local camps and drama clubs.The camp is designed for elementary school and early middle school participants and will be held at the Academy in the Chamblee/Dunwoody area.

Friday Movie: The Importance of Being Earnest

All students may enjoy the quick-witted Victorian charms of this classic Oscar Wilde play starring Colin Firth and Rupert Everett as Jack and Algy, but students enrolled in the Oscar Wilde lit class this semester may be especially interested in this adaptation. (The Importance of Being Earnest is rated PG; you can read the Common Sense Media review here.)

Friday Films are open to all students enrolled at the Academy in the high school or junior high. We encourage parents to review films to make sure you are comfortable with your student viewing them.

AP Classes, Dual Enrollment, Summer Options, and Other Planning Information for Next Year

Hi Academy Families! I’m sure you’re looking forward to the holidays (hooray!), but before the semester ends, we wanted to schedule a time to chat about next fall — we have the option to offer a few different AP classes, and students who are aiming for dual enrollment, outside credit, or summer classes may need to get their ducks in a row this spring. We won’t give a formal presentation, but we will present the options and be on hand to answer your specific questions.

Friday Movie: Bram Stoker's Dracula

Francis Ford Coppola’s lush, romantic take on the Dracula story is worth watching in its own right, but students enrolled in Victorian Vampires this semester may be especially interested in this adaptation. (Dracula is rated R, and it is definitely as bloody as the book; you can read the Common Sense Media review here.)

Friday Films are open to all students enrolled at the Academy in the high school or junior high. We encourage parents to review films to make sure you are comfortable with your student viewing them.

End-of-Term Saturnalia Shindig

You did it! Now it’s time to party like the Romans!

The Latin Club is hosting an end-of-term Saturnalia shindig to celebrate the end of the term and the traditional Roman festival for the god Saturn, a.k.a. Chronos, a.k.a. the bad guy in those Percy Jackson books. We will have a candle-themed white elephant gift exchange, some rousing games of Pente, a zesty holiday playlist, and we encourage you to bring a Mediterranean-themed snack (or any kind of food!) to share. Latin students who attend get 10 bonus points toward their final exams, just saying.

High School Finals Week

It’s everybody’s favorite time of year!

You’ve worked hard all term, so this is the easy part — get plenty of sleep, feel free to bring some snacks for mid-test pick-me-ups, and remember that you’ve been getting ready for your final all semester. You have done the work — now you just have to demonstrate that you can apply all the cool stuff you’ve learned.
