For students engaged in a classical education, gaining facility with Latin is essential. But it is not enough. For the other great classical language, Greek, must also be engaged if the student is best to develop a refined sense of aesthetics in thought and speech.
This year long course for High School uses the Athenaze I textbook to thoroughly acquaint the diligent student with the Greek of fifth century Athens – the language of Plato, Herodotus, Sophocles, and Thucydides. Built around a continuous narrative of the life of a farmer and his family, Athenaze I culminates in being able to read portions of Aeschylus’ masterful play The Persians.
If this is not wonderful enough, taking this Attic Greek course has the additional benefit (via frequent excerpts from the Gospels) of enabling one to read competently and with enjoyment the Greek New Testament, written in the simpler Koine dialect of the language.
The format of the course will be: occasional short audio lectures, assigned class work due on seminar days, and two 1-hour online seminars per week. The course provides credit for Greek.
