Aequora is a Latin enrichment program developed by the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study for elementary and middle school youth. The program offers an engaging introduction to the Latin language and Roman culture through spoken language exercises, reading and composition activities, and games. The program is designed to inspire students and foster enthusiasm for language-learning and the classical humanities.
The Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is to promote the study of the classical humanities through innovative, experienced-based educational programming in the U.S. and abroad. Founded in 2010 by Jason Pedicone and Eric Hewett, the Institute currently attracts talented and motivated students across America to its Living Latin and Greek summer programs. Additionally, the Institute partners with high schools and universities to design customized educational experiences in Italy, Greece, and elsewhere in Western Europe. Paideia staff members all have advanced degrees in Classics or related fields and extensive experience in the countries where we operate.
Aequora engages Paideia’s community of talented alumni and staff to bring inspiring learning experiences to young students. Accelerate Academy is grateful to have the opportunity to work with Aequora, and will begin offering Latin enrichment programs beginning in the Fall of 2015.
