The Science Olympiad team participated in the state competition at the Ohio State University for the 15th consecutive year! The team placed 24th out of 40 teams, an improvement from last year’s result.

Of the teams from southwest Ohio, Country Day’s team scored the second highest, edging out St Xavier, Indian Hill, and Loveland high schools.
