I'm trying to get a sense of what other schools are doing. Would you mind sharing what your school teaches in terms of Latin or other foreign languages and when.
As for us:
2nd - very basic, 2nd semester, teacher driven vocabulary
3rd - Latina Christiana I, ch 1-10 w/ classroom teacher
4th - Finish LC 1 w/ Latin teacher
5th - Begin LC 2 w/ Latin teacher
6th - Wheelock's 1-8 w/ Latin teacher
7th - Wheelock's up through 20; though w/ a quick review w/ Latin teacher
8th - Wheelock's from 16-30ish w/ Latin teacher
9th - Finish formal Latin grammar, transition to Prose Authors (Cicero) w/ Latin teacher
10th - AP authors (Vergil this year; Vergil/Caesar next) - elective
11th - Greek 3x/wk - elective
We recently made the switch from a Greek 1 in 10th grade and Greek 2 to 11th grade to offering Latin 4 in 10th grade and a single-year Greek class in 11th grade. We haven't hammered out all the details of the class because next year will be the first year it is offered as a single-year course instead of a two-year sequence.
Latin is required from 3rd through 10th grade with foreign language electives in the upper school.
We currently have
3rd - Schola Latina I (1-12) with Latin teacher
4th - Schola Latina I (13-24) with Latin teacher
5th - Schola Latina II (1-12) with Latin teacher
6th - Schola Latina II (13-24) with Latin teacher
7th - Jenney's First Year Latin (1-16) with Latin teacher
8th - Jenney's First Year Latin (17-32) with Latin teacher
9th - Wheelocks (22 to the end) with Latin teacher
10th - Aeneas to Augustus (select readings, about 1 a week) with Latin teacher
11th/12th - Poetry/Prose rotation - elective (both the upper school Latin teachers have a hand in selecting the readings, this year Poetry is selections from Vergil's Aeneid and Georgics and Ovid's Metamorphoses; I don't know exactly what the Prose selections were last year, but I do know there was some Caesar, some Vulgate, and some of C.S. Lewis's letters) with Latin teacher
9th-12th - Greek 1 3x/week - elective (we use Athenaze for both 1 and 2 and I try to use as much Latin in the class with translations) with Latin/Greek teacher
10th-12th - Greek 2 2x/week - elective with Latin/Greek teacher
9th-12th - French elective with French teacher
My Greek 2 class has asked me to teach Greek 3 next year and it is possible at some point we add an upper school Spanish elective back to the curriculum.
We start Latin in 4th Grade with Latin For Children A
5th Grade: Primer B
6th Grade: Lingua Latina
7th Grade: Jenney's First Year Latin (first half)
8th Grade: Jenney's First Year Latin (second half)
9th Grade: Primary texts: Gallic Wars, Tacitus, Livy, Cicero, etc.
10th Grade: Koine Greek I (I don't know the name of our program)
11th Grade: Koine Greek II
