SAS Students Recognized With National Latin Exam Awards

Latin students at the Upper & Middle Schools took the National Latin Exam in early March. They were joined by over 100,000 students from all 50 states and the District of Columbia and 13 other countries including Australia, Belize, Brazil, Canada, China, Italy, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.  There are separate exams for different levels of Latin, and students in each level are awarded medals (gold and silver) for high achievement and ribbons and certificates at the middle school level. Thirty-eight upper school students were recognized with some kind of award. At the Upper School ten students received Gold Medals and fifteen received Silver Medals, the two highest awards on the exam. Optime factum, discipuli!
