Students from New Covenant Christian School (NCCS), located in Abingdon, MD., recently competed in the 2016 Association of Christian School International (ACSI) Math Olympics. The New Covenant Olympians took impressive honors against the pool of talented, competing schools including a prestigious medallion for 100% accuracy on all four timed tests by fourth grader, William Keane. NCCS’s Math Olympics team has a long history of excelling at the competition since 2005. This year’s Olympics were hosted by Calvary Church in Lancaster, PA. on Friday, March 18 where 17 schools were represented and a total of 466 students participated in this annual event. Students are recognized for their achievements and are given the opportunity to glorify God through their mathematical abilities.
The ACSI Math Olympics is a series of timed tests where students in the same grade compete against one another. The areas of competition include Arithmetic Computation and Mathematical Reasoning. In order to qualify for the Math Olympics, students in grades three through six took two timed grade-level tests in these areas. The scores from these tests were used to determine which students qualified for the Olympics.
