The American Classical League instituted the National Latin Exam in 1978 in response to the desire of Latin teachers to offer their students an instrument whereby they might measure their success in the study of Latin. Participation in the exam is increasing. The 2005 exam was taken by 131,000 students in all 50 states and eight foreign countries. The American Classical League awards scholarship to exemplary seniors who intend to pursue the study of classics in college.
