Oak Hill Academy Eighth Grader Receives State Trophy in American Scholastic Challenge

In February 2016, 14,000 middle school students across the country participated in the American Scholastic Challenge sponsored by the American Scholastic Achievement League.  The purpose of the contest is to provide eighth grade students with an entertaining and challenging enrichment activity that allows them to demonstrate a variety of problem solving skills and knowledge in many academic areas. The 100 question online test covered a range of subjects including language & literature, geography, history, science, mathematics, and general knowledge (i.e. food, art, sports, music, current events, entertainment, and mythology.)  Students who participated were treated to a movie and party at school immediately after completing the online test.

 Oak Hill’s own Jake Fradkin (Manalapan) received the highest score in the state and was thereby named New Jersey State Champion!  In fact, 83% of the Oak Hill Academy eighth graders who signed up to participate received scores above the national average.  Jake and the other students were given their awards at Oak Hill’s Academic Awards Assembly on June 2, 2016. Congratulations students!
