PSIA Sign Up Ends on 9/14/16!

PSIA is an extracurricular academic competition program for students in grades 1 – 8. With 19 competition categories, it allows students to excel in a variety of content areas. Statistical research shows that students who participate in academic competitions and activities score higher on achievement and assessment tests than those who do not participate. Academic competitions also help students foster perseverance and develop a sense of teamwork. For more information about PSIA, please visit their website: http://www.psiaacademics.org/
