Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy’s Upper School is pleased to announce that 11 of its Grade 8 students have been recognized for their exceptional work on the National Latin Exam.
The National Latin Exam (NLE) is a test given annually to Latin students across the United States and around the world. The NLE is not meant to be a competition, but rather an opportunity for students to receive reinforcement and recognition for their accomplishments in the classroom. Depending upon their score, students may earn certificates, medals, and may even qualify for scholarships.
The following CHCA students were recognized:
- Cum Laude: Trevor Kuhlman
- Magna Cum Laude: Shane Duke, Brooke Gabriel, Jacob Loveless, and Riley Soles
- Maxima Cum Laude & Silver Medal: Samantha Bennett, Kelsey Espenshade, Luke Faircloth, and Isabella Nutter
- Summa Cum Laude and Gold Medal: Christina Admiraal
- Summa Cum Laude, Gold Medal, and Perfect Paper: Emma Figliola
Figliola will receive a special certificate commemorating her achievement. She joins this honor with former students Laura Karrer (’18), Robert Stewart (’19), Michael Deines (’19), and Johnathan Russell (’23). Figliola will also receive special recognition for her perfect score this summer at the National Junior Classical League Convention.
“I’m so proud of what our students accomplished,” shared CHCA Upper School Latin Teacher Brian Compton. “The hard work they put in this year preparing for the National Latin Exam, along with the study they did last year with Toni Kraft, has paid off in a very concrete way. I can’t wait to see what they will accomplish with their God-given talents in the future.”
In addition to the exam, five Latin students qualified for the National Latin Honor Society. This is a special designation given to Junior Classical League students who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and citizenship in Latin class. Students qualify by meeting the following requirements: member of Latin Club; maintain an A average in their current Latin class; be a student of good character. Congratulations to grade 8 students Christina Admiraal, Samantha Bennett, and Emma Figliola, and grade 7 students Griffin Ridner Richard and Leah Young.
Well done to all of these upper school students!
