Every year tens of thousands of high-achieving American and international students compete for a relatively small number of undergraduate spots at a handful of elite US universities.

How to Get an “A” in Latin

Carmenta's Latin Conversation class puts Elizabeth, 16, and other Carmenta students on the accelerated track to true fluency in the Latin language.

 

By Andrew Kuhry-Haeuser, Carmenta Founder
