SALVI's mission is to propagate communicative approaches to Latin language acquisition, making the entire Classical tradition of Western culture more available to—and enjoyable for—students, teachers, and the general public.
Summer 2015 will feature a new combination of week-long Latin immersion events at Claymont Estate: Rusticatio Tironum and Rusticatio Veteranorum, with a third, Septimana Virginiana, to be added in a future year. Check the comparison chart to determine which program might be best for you.
Three Bidua Latina (one in Charles Town, West Virginia, one in Malibu, California, and one in Tulsa, Oklahoma) provide a full weekend of Latin immersion. Teachers will return to their classrooms with active Latin strategies they can use right away. Our newest event is Pedagogy Rusticatio, with four days of intensive guided practice for teachers. The Academia Aestiva, hosted at the Getty Villa in Malibu, California, is a five-day partial-immersion workshop designed for high school Latin students of all levels.
