The Classical Association of Virginia was founded in November, 1910 to promote classical teaching and culture in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The first meeting was held at John Marshall High School in Richmond, and its first Executive Committee consisted of two college faculty members and three high school teachers. The CAV from its very beginnings has promoted and nurtured the collaboration of college faculty and high school Latin teachers in its meetings and programs over the last one hundred years. Through its inspiration of both teachers and faculty, the CAV has contributed significantly to the long and strong tradition of the study of Latin, Greek, and the classical world in Virginia. Now, one hundred years later, Virginia can take pride in its dynamic classics community and can boast of enrollments in high school Latin and enrollments in college and university Latin, Greek, and classical studies courses that rank among the highest of the nation.

The CAV’s motto, chosen in 1910, is a quote from Vergil’s Aeneid 1.203: Forsan et haec olim meminisse iuvabit. As we look back over the 100-year history of the Classical Association of Virginia and remember those many who contributed to the success of its mission, we can respond, “haec nunc meminisse iuvat.”
