Join us for our 2024 Summer Workshops

Teaching Credential in Latin Pedagogy

Program launches July 1st-7th with Latin Immersion Program in Cullman, Alabama!

Setting the standard for
Catholic Latin Education

A credential developed upon an integrated Catholic approach to Latin education in Catholic schools. By equipping teachers with the tools needed to pass on the language in its fullness, they will be able to give their students not only active command of the language but also transmit Catholic faith and culture – and, we dare say, have fun while learning!

Graduates may earn up to twelve hours of credit towards an MA in Catholic Liberal Arts Education


For any questions, please contact Monica Charles, VSI Registrar and Director of Student Services.
