NCA fifth graders are leaders and examples to the younger students in the Grammar School. Their growing maturity is evident as, having mastered reading comprehension, they move on to literary analysis and discussion of ideas rather than facts. Other highlights include completing their study of the countries of the world with Africa, learning about the U.S. and French Revolutions, and translating more complex sentences in Latin.
I am honored to be the teacher who sends these students on to the Logic School for the next stage of the Trivium.
