The Area of Classical Learning is pleased to announce the results of our recent participation in this year’s Regional Forum of the Junior Classical League (JCL). This past weekend, our chapter’s delegation of over 50 students from grades 6 through 12 competed against 350 of central Florida’s finest students from a dozen different schools in a host of contests that were academic, creative, dramatic, and physical in nature.
Our students individually took home 20 golds, 11 silvers, and 14 bronzes; but given the difficulty of the contests, their twenty-six 4th and 5th place finishes are also remarkable. In team competition (Certamen) they took 2nd and 4th place in Level I, 3rd place in Advanced. Especially notable, were Kiri F., Jack G., Mercia S., Zachary V., and Ryleigh W., who placed in every category in which they competed.
