Students from New Covenant Christian School (NCCS), in Abingdon competed in the 2017 Association of Christian School International (ACSI) Math Olympics. The New Covenant Olympians earned outstanding accolades for their accomplishments competing against 12 schools and a total of 326 students. This year’s Olympics were hosted by Tri-State Christian School at Calvary Church in Lancaster, PA. 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 Mathematical computation and reasoning. In order to qualify NCCS students in grades three through six took two timed grade-level tests in these areas. The wonderful teaching staff at NCCS met with the “team” for several weeks after school helping them hone their Math skills.
