The Keepers of Alexandria is a program created by David Kahn, Executive Director of NAMTA, and Dr. John A. Wyatt who was a professor of classics and comparative languages at the University of Chicago and Beloit College (WI) and the founder and director of the Greek and Latin program at the University of Chicago. The Keepers of Alexandria was originally developed as after-school enrichment for at-risk students in grades 3–8. The current program consists of stories and lessons that are presented through history, philosophy, and Latin, all based in the ancient city of Alexandria, Egypt.
