    Overview

    Calder Classics is an educational boutique that offers customized learning experiences associated with the Classics. We are founded on the premise that an understanding, and a critique, of modern culture is enhanced through thoughtful interaction with the legacy of the ancients.

    Calder Classics travel programs for high school students offer an intensive interdisciplinary approach to Ancient Greek, Latin, and Classics-inspired Creative Writing Workshops. By interacting with ancient history and art history, students deepen their understanding of language, literature and culture, and enhance their educational performance and personal growth.  Our summer travel programs last for two weeks each, and fully immerse students in the culture, language, and history of Italy and Rome.
