Oak Hill Academy Team places #2 in the Nation at the American Scholastic Challenge

For the last 15 years, our 8th graders have participated in the American Scholastic Achievement League’s Scholastic Challenge Test each February.

NJ Private School is Second in the Nation in American Scholastic Challenge 2022
Tylor, Kate, Maya & Vincent

It is a 100-question online test that covers language, literature, geography, history, science, math and general knowledge.  These topics are not form a specific curriculum, but rather they represent general knowledge.  Over 9,000 eighth graders across the country took this test this year.

We are pleased to announce some major awards! The team of Kate Schweikert, Maya Bhasin, Tylor Yang and Vincent Li placed 2nd in the Nation!!! This organization only announces the top three schools in the nation and we are now one of them!

Also, Kate Schweikert was the New Jersey Champion, number one in the state! Kate had a score of 94%, which was only two points off the individual national champion’s score of 96%!

This talented group of four eighth graders will be added to the names of previous OHA champions:

Congratulations to all of our eighth graders for participating in this challenging test. 76% of our entire eighth grade class scored above the national average!
