Congratulations to our players and parents on a great season of Certamen! Our Novice and Upper teams wrapped up their first fully in-person season since the pandemic by competing in the state finals as the Western Region champions. Two of our students, Luke Zylstra (8th grade) and Noah Zylstra (12th grade), won regional MVP for our region + their division. Well done, students!
Congratulations to our five Logic School students that went to the regional science fair and got 5 gold metals out of 5 and all qualified to go to the Illinois State Science Fair!
Kudos to our Griffins who participated in the ILJCL (Illinois Junior Classical League). Covenant secured the third position in the general sweepstakes by scoring the third highest number of points overall among all the schools, and second place in the per capita sweepstakes by earning the second highest number of points per student!
Additionally, our 8th-grade students exhibited an impressive performance by securing the fourth position in the overall Certamen standings, even though they competed in a division comprising high school sophomores and juniors.
