Posted: Updated:

The St. John Berchmans School team took first place at the Science Olympiad State Tournament held March 30 on the campus of Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond, Louisiana.  This is the sixth consecutive year that St. John Berchmans School has won first place at the state level. 

Members from the St. John Berchmans team medaled in 15 of the 23 events including six first place medals, eight second place medals and one third place medal.  St. John Berchmans School will travel to Orlando, Florida, in May to compete in the National Tournament against 59 teams from around the country.

The St. John Berchmans Science Olympiad program is yet another example of how the school is establishing itself as a local leader in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) curriculum. The middle school is serving this year as one of five pilot school for the National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center's STEM EDA program.

Science Olympiad is one of the premiere science competitions in the nation, providing standards-based challenges to nearly 6,200 teams in 50 states.  Science Olympiad tournaments are rigorous academic interscholastic competitions that consist of a series of team events, which students prepare for during the year.

 St. John Berchmans is a Catholic school with students enrolled in grades Pre-K3 through 8th grade.  Founded in 1949, St. John Berchmans School is accredited by AdvancEd and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
