Our former student Sean Coady introduces Latin in York County school!

Before dawn on Monday, a small group of students at York Comprehensive High School were sitting in class with books open, diligently translating the ancient language of Latin.

The pink of dawn arched across the sky as teacher Sean Coady led the class in a discussion of the meaning, grammar and sentence structure of a language widely spoken in the Roman Empire.

Coady, a biology teacher fueled by intellectual curiosity, earned enough credit through night and summer study at the University of South Carolina to qualify to teach Latin on the Advanced Placement level.

He instructs the only for-credit Latin class offered at any of the 14 public high schools in York, Chester and Lancaster counties.
