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 2016 at Claymont Estate will feature two week-long Latin immersion events--Rusticatio Tironum and Rusticatio Veteranorum--as well as the four-day teacher workshop Pedagogy Rusticatio. 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. 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.
SALVI has partnered with The Paideia Institute for the Humanities to create Peregrinantur | Rusticantur, an incentive program that provides scholarships for SALVI programs to teachers who organize travel through the Paideia Institute.
