SJE Eagles Win At Regional Latin Forum

SJE Eagles Win At Regional Latin Forum

Our Eagles have soared to victory for the 21st time in the Regional Latin Forum, upholding the SJE winning tradition! Students competed on February 5 in the Latin Regional Forum and beat out all area private schools in person, and others across the country virtually!

They entered their creative projects and took academic tests in areas such as Grammar, Vocabulary, Roman History, Mythology, and Customs. Competing virtually with schools from across the state, Co-Consuls Maren A. and Ashleigh C. led St John’s Latin students to win in Certamen, Creatives, and Academics! We would like to bring special attention to the four students who took two 1st places - one on their academic test and one on their project! Congratulations to Luca R., Lila B., Oliver B. and Nora C. 

We are incredibly proud of our Latin students for once again bringing home the victory to SJE, and look forward to what they can do at the State Championship! Below you can find the full results from the Forum:

Certamen is an academic trivia game with 3 rounds of ten questions and a final round of 15.

Our teams all placed very well!!
