Unique for being one of the very few public schools in Florida to mandate the study of Latin, Classical Preparatory School has a distinct nomenclature that incorporates Latin terminology into the fabric of the school, creating a unique culture that students will remember in the years to come. The nomenclature is a reflection of the continuity between Classical Prep and great schools of the classical tradition, such as Boston Latin. Throughout their years at Classical Prep, students become increasingly accustomed to using Latin terminology and the importance of language as an instrument of beauty and power.
