Using Lingua Latina per se Illustrata by Hans Orberg, the ultimate goal of the Latin program is to attain mastery and command of the language in order to read Latin classics and to understand the Latin authors in their language. This is effectively achieved through an active use of the language — listening, reading, writing and speaking in Latin. 

These courses are taught entirely in Latin, with students first learning the meaning of words and phrases in context.  The consistent repetition of essential vocabulary and grammatical forms through a written narrative and oral instruction are complimented by a persistent study of Latin grammar.

Level One covers all the fundamental elements of Latin grammar, while Level Two will introduce students to Latin authors and Roman history at a more advanced level.
