SJE Latin Places at Nationals!

SJE Latin Places at Nationals!

In late July, St John’s sent seven students to the National Junior Classical League Forum, held at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.

They competed in tests such as Grammar, Roman Culture, Latin/Greek Derivatives, Roman History, etc. against the over 1000 students in attendance from across the country. They also competed with Creative projects, in the highly competitive National trivia game, called Certamen, and Olympika events, like Swimming, Marathon and Basketball. 

This year, SJE had some of the youngest competitors, as two Grade 6 students attended. We also, very proudly, had two alumni continuing in the competitive Latin traditions that they learned at St John’s, and a third alumna, now in college, who was elected to the National Board!

St. John’s also submitted the SJE Latin Scrapbook to the National competition. This scrapbook, made by Londyn A (2022 Historian) and Ela B (2023 Historian) earned 5th place against middle and high school scrapbooks from across the nation!
