Elementa Online


January 18th - March 12th, 2021 (weekly lesson)



Elementa Online is an online course in introductory Latin for elementary and middle school students using Paideia’s Elementa curriculum. The program includes eight weekly, hour-long live classes with an instructor and a small learning pod of other students. Topics covered include Latin vocabulary and grammar as well as Roman history and mythology. In addition to the weekly classroom sessions, the program includes online access to instructional videos, quizzes, and other learning materials.


This program welcomes elementary and middle school students from the ages of 8 to 12 years old who wish to learn Latin, and by doing so improve their English literacy. Students will be grouped with other students at a similar age and experience level. For this session, we will host separate classes for beginner students and students who are continuing through the Elementa curriculum from our fall session.


Sessions for Elementa Online will meet once a week for 8 weeks using free video conferencing software. All that is necessary to participate is an internet or phone connection and the Elementa student workbook. Sessions will be scheduled based on participants’ time zone and availability so students from all over the world are welcome to apply.
