Homeschool Latin Curriculum Options

by Amber Diaz
(Phoenix, AZ, USA)

Any help you can provide would be GREATLY appreciated! I am very interested in homeschooling my son, who is currently in a 7th grade gifted program at an Arizona public school, but only in one subject: LATIN.


The desire to homeschool him in this subject is due to the fact that we have been less than pleased with the public school program and wish to transfer him to a college prep school next year (8th grade.) When I reviewed their curriculum, I noticed they begin teaching Latin in 6th grade, so I would like to lessen the disadvantage of not being enrolled in Latin since that time as much as possible. We feel that even if he does not make it into that school, Latin would be a great subject for him to study either way...but we would like for it to be accredited. Can you please provide any information on this? Is it possible to only homeschool in one subject? How fast can you move through curriculum?

I am desperate and ANY information you can provide would be such a great help! Thank you!

Hi Amber,
Yes, you could homeschool one subject and your son can move as fast as he wants through a course.

Some popular Latin homeschool curriculum:
Latin Trivium

Latina Christiana

You will find some latin reviews for:
Visual Latin and First Form Latin on my website.
Blessings,

Latin program NEW
by: Mrs. Dani

I have talked to a lot of people and we decided on a program this year. It has worked great & the kids actually ask to do it.

Now it is pricy but you can do non-interest payments. We are using Rosetta Stone. It really is a fabulous program. My kids are younger than yours but it works great. I am staying 1 lesson ahead of the kids. What is great is there are 2 versions. The Homeschool comes with a cd that has a student workbook & test booklet on it (with an answer key) YOu can run this a variety of ways; a full 36 week course complete with workbook sheets, a way to just learn how to speak, and so much more. It is up to you. There are up to 5 different levels. Plus, you can have up to 5 different students on each computer you install it on.

I suggest 2 things: first, call Rosetta Stone & get a FREE demo mailed to you. 2nd, I caution you from running to ebay. There are some ....not so nice sellers who are selling bootleg copies that do not work & you are out of luck getting your money back. Unless, you know the person, I adivise NOT buying it used online.

Like I said, this is pricy but we bit the bullet & did the payments & couldnt be happier. Ask around & be sure to check out the selection at your HS convention. (the season is coming up for those.) There will be many kinds of Latin Programs you can look through and then decide.
