People often ask:

Is Visual Latin good for high school credit?

Here is the reply:

In terms of the material it covers, Visual Latin, Latin 1 (Lessons 1-30) and Latin 2 (Lessons 31-60) are each good for one high school foreign language credit (2 credits total).

By itself, however, it will not provide a full 150 hours of work.

Some parents are less concerned about this.  Others may want to provide extra supporting materials for upper-level high school students. For those who want to provide extra, we recommend supplementing Latin 1 with Lingua Latina per se Illustrata. (The older version of LL without color is the same text and perfectly acceptable.)

We have created a free Visual Latin/Lingua Latina Teaching Guide. You can use this “map” to match Visual Latin with Lingua Latina over a two-year period.

[Note that Lingua Latina is a unique Latin only, college-level book. Visual Latin has been modeled on this book, and in terms of content, teaches exactly the same things.]
