Hosted by the Getty Villa in Malibu, California, in collaboration with
SALVI, the Academia Aestiva Latina provides a semi-immersion
opportunity for high school students. Participants will experience
Latin and ancient Roman culture in the context of a reimagined Roman
villa. This five-day seminar is free of charge. Teaching staff consist
of experienced SALVI-affiliated Latin speakers who teach the classroom
portion of the course, as well as museum educators who lead guided
discussions and hands-on activities exploring works of art in the
Museum’s collection and the recreated Roman architecture and gardens
of the Villa site. Each day balances Latin-language learning in the
classroom with active, on-site study of
Roman culture in the Villa. The course is designed for students who
have had at least one year of high school Latin study.
