Junior Classical League
Junior Classical League:
Our purpose is to encourage an interest in and an appreciation of the language, literature, and culture of ancient Greece and Rome and to impart an understanding of the debt of our own culture to that of Classical antiquity. We participate in “certamen” competitions and Olympika activities at local and state events, helping Latin programs to grown and promoting fellowship among schools around the valley. Our JCL members also participate in the National Mythology Exam to see how they place at a national level!
Math Club is a fun time to explore math topics beyond what is learned in the classroom. It’s also an opportunity for Heritage scholars to show off their exceptional mathematical skills at local, state, and national competitions. Scholars see the fun side of math and meet new friends in the process. It’s serious brain twisting fun!
The debate club meets Mondays after school in preparation for the First Annual Heritage Academy Inter-Campus Debate, pitting the best teams from Gateway, Laveen, and Mesa campuses. This event was recently held, and at the event, the resolution we debated was whether civil disobedience is ever justified in the United States. We plan to continue holding this annual event until it becomes a Heritage tradition! Please contact Mr. Wolverton at JWolverton@heritageacademyaz.com for more information.
Over 90 scholars signed a petition asking Mr. Wolverton to hold a book club over the summer (and throughout the next school year) so that we could continue studying the books that are part of the Founders’ Recipe curriculum that he created. With that much interest, he decided to start the club and Heritage Academy will begin holding book club in the summer and will continue meeting one day a week during the next school year.
Any scholar or teacher from any campus is invited to join us over the summer! Contact JWolverton@heritageacademyaz.com for more information. We hope you join us!
