The School is divided into three classes: Junior, Intermediate,
and Senior.

The Junior Class is intended especially for those who
desire to make a thorough review of the inflections and to

acquire a practical familiarity with the great principles of
the language. The only author read in this class is Xenophon.

Grammar.—Kühner's Elementary.

The authors read in the Intermediate Class are principally:
Lysias, Xenophon, Herodotus, Homer, and Demosthenes;
and in the Senior, Thucydides, Sophocles, Euripides,
and Plato.

Grammars.—Hadley's, Kühner's, Goodwin's Moods and

Liddell and Scott's Lexicon, Smith's History of Greece,
Browne's Greek Literature.

A private course of parallel and preparatory reading is
also prescribed for each class.

The Post Graduate Department has been instituted for
the benefit of graduates and others who wish to pursue a
more extended course of reading. The authors read in this
department are such as are either by their form or subjects
less suited for the regular school, e. g., Æschylus, Aristophanes,
and Aristotle.

Hebrew.—The Professor of Greek will also give instruction
in Hebrew whenever the demand for such instruction
is sufficient to make the institution of a course of lectures


In the examinations of candidates for graduation in Latin
and Greek, the passages given for the written translations
are selected, not from the portions of authors which have
been read and explained in the lecture room, but from the
classic writers at will.
