Latin Program Returns to Riverhead High School

August 31, 2021

The Riverhead Central School District is excited to announce the continuation of its Latin program, a program rich in tradition that has taught students the language for decades through the comprehensive program.

With the hiring of new Latin teacher Aidan Walsh, the program can now continue. The Latin program, available to high school students this year, provides a foundation for deeper understanding of English grammar and linguistics, an awareness of the influence of Latin on English as well as other Romance languages, an introduction to classical Greek and Roman mythology, a foundation in ancient history that is the basis of our current laws, government, literature and the arts and provides opportunities for critical thinking and analysis of literature. Mr. Walsh is committed to developing the Latin program for our current students and the next generation of Latinists at Riverhead.

Students interested in participating in the program should contact their guidance counselor.
