At the Kent Center School, we are proud to partner with The Paideia Institute and offer Aequora as an after-school program. Aequora is a K-8 curriculum focusing on literacy education via Latin. Led by independent site coordinators, Aequora has expanded to over 40 sites in 16 states.
At Kent Center, we have chosen Aequora because we believe in the benefits of a classical education. Through The Paideia Institute's Aequora curriculum, our volunteers harness the classical languages’ power to improve literacy while making the ancient mediterranean world fun and accessible to students of all backgrounds.
Located in the northwestern corner of Connecticut, the Kent Center School, the only public school in the town of Kent, is a Pre-K through 8 school with approximately 282 students and twenty-seven teachers. The Kent School, the local high school where our volunteers are based, is just opposite to Kent Center School, which makes our Aequora site very convenient and easy to operate.
We hold Aequora sessions every Wednesday afternoon from 1-2:30pm at the Kent Center School. At the end of the program, we will organize a Latin play performed by the students there at the Kent Auditorium. Our students are mainly 5th and 6th graders, and some of them will eventually come to the Kent School to study and learn Latin, which makes our teaching very helpful to them.
