The Certamen (ker-ta-men) team prepares students for competition at Junior Classical League events. Students learn all aspects of classical society, history and mythology, and test their knowledge against high school teams from across the state. Events include: academic tests (e.g. history, mythology, grammar, vocabulary, Roman daily life); speech events; catapult and chariot; essay and story writing. The premier event is the Certamen, a team quiz contest. Sign up in August.
