The Upper School's Classical Society recently competed at the Fall Forum, a statewide Georgia Junior Classical League event held North Gwinnett High School.
The School's Advanced Certamen team took second place overall. Certamen is a Latin quiz bowl where teams answer questions on classics-related topics such as Roman history, mythology, Latin literature, Latin grammar and vocabulary, and Latin state mottoes and abbreviations. The team is comprised of Jessica Lao '19, Sarah Lao '21, Akshadha Lagisetti '21, George Alford '20, and Rosa Kim '21.
Jessica also received the top score on the Pentathlon test, which is Fall Forum's premier test. As a result, she will attend the state convention in April.
