Latin students at the 2016 Junior Classical League State Convention.
 
Welcome to Latin at California High School! 
Latin has been at Cal-High since the school began in 1953 and we are boldly carrying on that tradition! We offer four years and levels of Latin at Cal, including the option of Honors or Advanced Placement (AP) Latin in fourth year. All Cal High students are welcome to join our awesome Latin Club, the Dead Language Club (DLC), and our school chapter in the Junior Classical League (JCL)!

About Latin Class and Club
At Cal High we learn Latin in an engaging, natural and fun way!
 
It is my hope that all Latin students will
   - cultivate appreciation for a world that was, and still is, connected to Latin
   - develop a love for the art of conversation and connecting with others
   - have a positive experience understanding and producing a new language!
 
Latin Students at Cal High
   - hear lots of Latin being spoken in the classroom
   - connect interpersonally with others in Latin and English
   - create their own stories and read stories and books in Latin that are compelling and interesting
   - learn about particular areas of ancient culture and the Latin language that especially interest them
   - form lasting relationships with other Latin students at Cal and beyond.
 
Latin at Cal High is a family!
 
About Mr. Maust
I graduated from Biola University with a History major and teaching credential, and later added my Latin credential through California State University Long Beach. I love teaching Latin! I also love history, reading, games, travel, camping, and playing instruments (especially the piano, organ, accordion and harmonica!). I live in Whittier with my wife and three children. If you come to our Latin club events, you will get to know them!
