Textbooks for Latin Subjects
Our teachers have carefully selected classical education textbooks which present their course materials in an organized manner, but which also reflect our primary mission to provide a rigorous and thorough preparation for the life of the mind in Christ. Please read the information supplied in their notes carefully. In some cases, you may be able to substitute editions, but not in others. In many cases, used versions of the textbook will be available through Amazon or ABE Books. If you have any questions about the appropriateness of a text for your student, or about the correct edition to buy, please contact the teacher.
As an Amazon Associate, Scholars Online earns income from qualifying purchases, which is deposited to our Scholarship fund. We encourage to buy your Scholars Online texts (and other Amazon purchases) through our bookstore links to help fund scholarships for needy students.
During the early part of the calendar year, the bookstore may list textbooks for courses from both the current academic year, and the upcoming summer and fall academic years. Not all textbooks will be listed until teachers approve course descriptions and select their books. Be sure that you order books for the correct enrollment year.

Courses in Latin
|Latin I (1602) •  Bruce McMenomy|
|Latin II (1608) •  Bruce McMenomy|
|Latin III (1626) •  Bruce McMenomy|
|Latin IV (Caesar and Vergil) (1627) •  Bruce McMenomy|
||Caesar: Selections from his Commentarii De Bello Gallico [Any edition]|
Hans-Friedrich Mueller, G. Julius Caesar
Prices on this have fluctuated severely over the last few years. It should be around $45. If it goes skyrocketing from there, let me know via email and we'll come up with some alternative solution. If Amazon is tweaking the prices unreasonably, check into the option directly from the publisher here: http://www.bolchazy.com/Caesar-Selections-from-his-Commentarii-De-Bello-Gallico-P3161.aspx
||Syntactical Mechanics [Edition required: 1]|
Bruce A. McMenomy
This book is also required for Latin III, so continuing students will already have a copy.
||The Landmark Julius Caesar: The Complete Works: Gallic War, Civil War, Alexandrian War, African War, and Spanish War [Edition required: 1]|
C. Julius Caesar, Kurt A. Raaflalaub (ed.), Robert B. Strassler (series editor)
This is a magnificent book and a bargain for what it contains. If it's prohibitive, please let me know. I would permit another translation of Caesar's text, but this edition supplies a great deal of supporting information that will make the shape of Caesar's campaigns vastly more accessible. In either case I will be assigning readings from the accompanying web document (which is available freely to all) — which contains about 325 pages of material that wouldn't fit into the book itself.
||Vergil's Aeneid: Expanded Collection [Any edition]|
P. Vergilius Maro, Barbara W. Boyd
||Why Vergil?: A Collection of Interpretations [Any edition]|
|Medieval Latin (1641) •  Bruce McMenomy|
