The American Classical League's National Latin Exam is predicated on providing every Latin student the opportunity to experience a sense of personal accomplishment and success in the study of the Latin language and culture.

On 16 March 2018, fifty of PCHS' Latin students (along with over 143,000 students from all fifty states and twenty-four foreign countries).  From these fifty students, PCHS earned eleven awards:  two Summa Cum Laude, two Maxima Cum Laude, one Magna Cum Laude, five Cum Laude, and one Blue Certificate of Merit.

The faculty and staff of PCHS would like to congratulate Raul Andrea-Perera, Samantha Bibler, Celeste Furler, Pierce McDaniel, Rober Sauer, Emmy Simpson, Katriona Slattery, Tanner Stutts, and Drew Surrette for their academic achievements in one of our foundational courses.



The National Merit® Scholarship Program is an academic competition for recognition and scholarships that began in 1955. High school students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test —which serves as an initial screen of approximately 1.6 million entrants each year.


Of those 1.6 million students, about 50,000 of them qualify for this recognition. The faculty and staff of PCHS would like to congratulate Gavin George (left) and Robert Sauer (right) for their academic progression in this prestigious program.  We are wishing you luck!
