The Jr. Olympiad competitions encourage students to think “outside of the box.”
Participants in these competitions have to work well in a team, cooperate, follow directions, manage time, and excel academically with a strong focus on engineering and math.
Ss. Peter and Paul participates in at least two local Olympiads that are for 7th and 8th-grade students only. These competitions are the Junior Olympiad at SIUE and also the Creative Challenge at Jerseyville.
