Students perform at Academic Day

Trinity Christian School was well-represented at the ACSI Academic Day held at Teays Valley Christian School on April 24, 2015.

The ACSI Academic Day is an all-day, annual event that is unique to the Ohio River Valley District of the ACSI. Students from all grade levels representing Christian schools from the state of West Virginia come together for a variety of competitions. Students must be selected at the classroom level in order to participate in the areas of science, math, speech, and art. This year, students from Trinity participated in the Art Festival, Math Olympics, Music Festival, Science Fair, and Speech Meets.

The Academic Day activities are planned to impact the educational and spiritual growth of each student, encouraging them in excellence and to be a testimony to the gospel of Jesus Christ. The following is a list of the students or groups who represented Trinity this year, as well as their awards (if applicable).
