DETROIT GREEK AND LATIN MISSION

Detroit Greek and Latin Educational Foundation (hereafter DGL) is a public non-profit dedicated to offering Greater Detroit area students the opportunity to learn Ancient Greek. In addition, DGL aims to fortify existing Latin programs, and to increase the rigor of classics and language arts curricula — especially within Detroit's public schools.

Every student deserves access to a classical education in accord with the highest standards: one anchored in Ancient Greek language and literature. Every bright and earnest elementary student deserves a taste of Homer in the original. Every beginner of Latin should have opportunity of arriving at AP (Advanced Placement) status in Latin (and/or Greek).

Every student should know how to think about ancient artifacts, societies, peoples, and literature. Every thoughtful adult deserves exposure to the wisdom, beauty, and vision of antiquity. Though adult education courses and lectures, DGL works to extend public awareness of Greek and Latin tradition; through virtual and live instruction in consultation with administrators, principals, and teachers, DGL is committed to improving the rigor of overall language arts and social studies instruction.
