Nosce Latine, Nosce Te Ipsum

Mr. Sala, Upper School Latin Teacher at Ascent Classical Academy of Douglas County, was asked to write on the importance of studying latin:

“…everyone knows a little Latin. Its roots pervade our language and culture. If you have ever studied American law or government, read the periodic table, or even told the time (AM and PM stand for ante or post meridiem – “before” or “after noon” – respectively), you have engaged with the Latin language. The very alphabet we teach our children is – with very minor alterations – that of the ancient Romans.”
