Since 2010 the summer intensive courses in Rome have brought to the Eternal City hundreds of students who look for a perfect environment for the study of Latin, Ancient Greek, and Biblical Hebrew (3 weeks in duration).

In addition to Classical Languages, Polis Institute and the Holy Cross University opened a methodology course in order to train teachers according to the Polis method.

The language courses last for three weeks, while the methodology course lasts for two weeks. Students of the Holy Cross University can submit a request to their dean for the credits received to be recognized.
