What is ClassConn?

The Classical Association of Connecticut (ClassConn) is the statewide organization for those interested in the Classics. It was formed:

  • to foster excellence in the teaching of Classical languages and civilizations in the schools, colleges, and universities of Connecticut;

  • to advance the study of Classical languages and civilizations and research therein, the diffusion of knowledge thereof, and the continuing education of teachers of such subjects, and

  • to sponsor student activities pertaining to classical languages and civilizations.

ClassConn is the proud sponsor of the Connecticut State Latin Contest, Connecticut State Latin Day (held annually in May) and Connecticut State Ancient Greek Day (held annually in November).
