2020 National Latin Exam Results

Tuesday, May 5, 2020

The results are in from the National Latin Exam, and congratulations are due to the students below for their achievements:

Latin 1
Emma Leedy
Cum Laude distinction
Eric BlacklidgeCum Laude distinction

Latin 3
Natalie Williams
Maxima Cum Laude distinction
Meredith FairmanMagna Cum Laude distinction

This exam was taken by Latin students across the entire country. While everyone at the Academy who took the exam did well, receiving a mark of distinction means that compared to peers across the country these students have excelled. It is important to note that Natalie Williams and Meredith Fairman are second year Latin students, but take the Latin 3 (as opposed to Latin 2) exam because the Academy operates under an accelerated curriculum/dual credit. This means that they have received distinction in a year beyond where they would typically be expected to be.

Congratulations to all who took the exam! Our Latin students are truly extraordinary!
