Why Study Latin?

At Cheverus we don’t study Latin just as the language of the Roman Empire 2,000 years ago.  We also recognize Latin as a living part of the Catholic Church, Western Culture, and the English Language right up until the present day.  

The brief video below gives a nice summary of some of the reasons and benefits for studying Latin.  I have separately posted the chart of SAT scores below the video, and also  a coupled more in-depth discussions: Top 10 Reasons for Studying Latin by Cheryl Lowe of Memoria Press, and Some Leading Benefits of Latin (and Classical) Studies from St. Louis University.
