Latin II student Sebastian Kania, the son of Pawel and Ewa Kania, earned a perfect score on this competitive examination.

In its inaugural year, 1978, approximately 9,000 students participated in the exam, and the number has grown steadily each of its forty years to reach its current level. The birth, growth, and success of the National Latin Exam are all the results of a cooperative venture which has linked elementary-, middle-, high-school, and college teachers across the nation and the world.

The test National Latin Exam tests students’ knowledge of ancient Roman language, grammar, literature, geography, daily life, mythology, history, and English derivatives. There are also comprehension questions based on a short passage. The test has a time limit of 45 minutes.

The BCHS winners will be recognized at Bristol Central World Language Department’s awards ceremony on Tuesday, May 16 at 2:30 p.m. in the BCHS auditorium.
