Groton’s young classicists excelled once again this year on the National Latin Exam, with 71 percent of Latin students receiving cum laude recognition or higher, and 67 percent of those students earning either maxima cum laude or summa cum laude. Six students performed flawlessly on the exam, earning a perfect score.
Earning a perfect score on the 2019 National Latin Exam were Evan Cheigh '22, Jack Ehrgott '22 (for the second time), Jasmine Garcia '22, John Rogers ’22, Antonia Samwer ’23, and Brian Xiao '19 (his third time!).
In addition, the National Latin Exam Committee recognized Julien Alam ‘19, Marianne Lu '19, and Sophie Park '19, for achieving summa cum laude for five consecutive years, and Joshua Guo ’20, Julien Lee Heberling '19, Amy Lu ’19, Ademola Ogunsanya ’19, Andrew Porter ’20, Karla Sanford ’19, and Brian Xiao ’19 for achieving summa cum laude on four National Latin Exams.
On the National Greek Exam, Tilly Brooks ’19, Eunice Cho ’20, Joshua Guo, Sophie Park, and Andrew Porter received a blue ribbon for their superior work this year, while all Groton students enrolled in Ancient Greek received awards from the American Classical League for their notable achievement on the exam.
Congratulations to our Latin and Greek scholars, and thank you to the teachers who inspire them!
