Since its start in 2008, the Meritas Academic Olympiad has brought the spirit of competition to academics through the assembly of outstanding middle school students from Meritas schools around the world. Seven outstanding students from each of the ten Meritas Schools gather together to compete in Oration, Declamation, Music, Spelling, Chess, Geography, and Math. The MAO celebrates brainpower, determination, and hard work!

This year’s MAO was held this week at Rancho Solano Preparatory School in Scottsdale, Arizona. Our MAO team consisted of:

Christopher  (8th grade) – Math

Emma  (6th grade) – Oration

Lea (8th grade) – Geography

Liza  (7th grade) – Music

Olivia  (8th grade) – Declamation

Sheen  (8th grade) – Spelling

William  (6th grade) – Chess

Award Winners from HIS

Oration, 3rd place – Emma

Declamation, 3rd place – Olivia

Spelling, 2nd place – Sheen

It DOES take brainpower, determination, and hard work just to be selected for the MAO team, and we are proud of each of our representatives and their talented faculty-advisor Tara Cadena. Congratulations to the entire team!
