The Classics Club was founded to promote enthusiasm for Classics by offering opportunities beyond the classroom for boys to broaden their knowledge about the languages and daily lives of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Weekly meetings focus on preparation for Certamen competitions, which involve rapid-fire questions on topics ranging from the minutiae of Latin grammar and vocabulary, Latin-based etymology, Roman history and culture, and classical mythology in a Jeopardy-like setting. The group attends various competitions in Massachusetts but also hosts intra- and inter-School competitions during the year.
