Though of course with any program you can teach pronunciation yourself, if you know it, rather having to rely on what the boo...

Latina Christiana is one course suitable for that age: http://wonder.riverwillow.com.au/home_education/Latin/latina_christiana.htm It is intended to be used in conjunction with Greenleaf Press's Famous Men of Rome , but if you were using something different for history you could of course adapt it.
