Catholic Homeschool Curriculum
The study of foreign language is an important component of a good education. Studies confirm that students who have studied a second language (especially Latin students) score higher on standardized tests like the SAT and the ACT, show improved understanding of all other subjects including English literacy, structure and vocabulary, social studies, math, and virtually all other subjects.
Latin is an excellent language to study because Latin is the foundational language for the study of theology, philosophy, law, medicine, and science. Seton is also expanding its modern language offerings through a partnership with Rosetta Stone. The Rosetta Stone courses offer an immersive experience which is ideal for learning a living and spoken language.
