Williams Students Earn Awards from the American Classical League
The American Classical League (ACL), a professional organization for classicists, annually sponsors the National Latin Exam, a standardized Latin test for high school students.
Williams students in Latin 7, Latin 8, Latin I, Latin II, CLIII, and Latin V (Advanced) classes took this exam in late February, along with over 139,000 students across the country and from 20 countries around the world. 21 Williams students in middle and upper school earned an award from the ACL. All of these students earned a score that is higher than the national average and better on this exam. Congratulations to everyone!
