Enter our five KET Latin courses
Welcome to KET's Distance Learning Latin program, where middle and high school students learn to excel!
All courses are based on the National Standards for Foreign Language Learning and on state education standards. Our students learn through a multimedia approach that includes:
- Textbooks and activity books
- Video lessons (available streamed from the web, on DVDs, or CDs)
- Extensive online materials, including activities, practice opportunities, additional readings, and virtual visits to ancient sites
- Direct interaction via email and telephone with KET's Latin teacher and tutors
You may already know about the academic benefits of studying Latin. If not, consider this: Recent studies conducted by the Educational Testing Service reveal that Latin students consistently outperform their peers on the verbal section of the SAT. A similar effect has been documented among students taking the ACT.
Latin offers other academic benefits, too. Not only does it provide a strong grounding in the vocabulary and structure of modern European languages, it also helps students learn and understand the technical vocabulary of the sciences. By offering a window into Roman culture, history, and literature, Latin deepens understanding of Western civilization.

Latin 1 and Latin 2 may be taken for dual credit through the MSU Early College program.
