The National Latin Exam is an annual test given to Latin students in the US and from other nations. The exam is not a competition, but is intended to recognize students for their study of this classical language. RAA is one of only eight grade schools in the U.S. that competes in this program.
1st through 8th Grade students are assigned to one of six school houses named after Catholic Saints Frassati, Drexel, Martin, JPII, Guadalupe, and Jogues.

Each house contains a cross-section of students from each grade, with the 8th grade students serving as house captains.
