Catholic Homeschool Curriculum

Foreign Languages

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.

Seton highly recommends Latin, because Latin is the foundational language for the study of theology, philosophy, law, medicine, and science.
