In March, St. Andrew’s Latin students took the National Latin Exam (NLE). They competed with over 143,000 students from 50 states and 24 countries. There are separate exams for different levels of Latin, and students in each level are awarded medals (gold and silver) for high achievement. Twenty-three Upper School students were recognized with some kind of award. Four students received Gold Medals and six received Silver Medals, the two highest awards on the exam.
St. Andrew's Middle School had 23 students take the exam, and 15 of them scored above the national average and earned awards. William Sykes ‘23 earned a Perfect Paper Certificate for answering every question correctly on the 40-question exam. Additionally, Bering Edwards ‘22 competed in three exams with the Upper School Latin students. He earned Silver Medals in the National Latin Vocabulary Exam and National Classical Etymology Exam and a Gold Medal in the National Roman Civilization Exam.
