Welcome to TCA's
Latin ExCET Preparation

Each spring the Texas Classical Association and the Department of Classics at the University of Texas at Austin sponsor a free review for the Latin ExCET exam.  For details, including the date of the next review, click here.

To teach in the state of Texas, individuals are required to pass the Examination for the Certification of Educators in Texas. The Latin ExCET is reported to be a difficult, challenging test requiring an ability to manage your time well plus mastery of your material.

A special thanks go to  Peder Christiansen, Ed George, Paul Allen Miller, and Tim Moore, who constructed a practice exam and compiled some review materials and tips for taking the exam.  The result of their hard work is this "mini-site" at TCA's main website. 

Additional thanks go to Tim Moore, who regularly reviews the material on this site, corrects errors and adds additional useful information. Without him, this site would not be up to date. Tibi gratias ago.

The State Board for Educator Certification can be found at this site:


Through this site you can find study guides for the Latin ExCET or click here to go directly.  Testing dates can be found here.

There is a specific page called "How to become at teacher in Texas" at http://www.sbec.state.tx.us/SBECOnline/certinfo/becometeacher.asp which might be of use as well.

Good luck with your exams!
