Advanced Grammar is designed to be repeated. Students who repeat this course will review the same definitions and examples, but will be given an entirely new set of exercises and assignments upon which to build their grammar skills.

Please note: Intermediate Grammar is a prerequisite for this course. If you feel that your student has a solid grasp of sentence diagramming, but has not taken Intermediate Grammar with WTMA, please email [email protected] to request enrollment. Instructor approval required without prerequisite.

Prerequisite: Intermediate Grammar for the Well-Trained Mind; Intermediate or Advanced Grammar Placement Test
