Immaculata recently hosted its second annual Immaculata Scholastica, an academic competition for area middle schools. Ten schools went head to head in six rounds of competition, answering increasingly difficult questions encompassing STEM, Humanities, and Arts curriculum. Immaculata students served as question readers and school guides, while faculty assumed the roles of judges, timekeepers, scorekeepers, and room facilitators. 

After an exciting and competitive event, St. Matthias School (Somerset) emerged as the 1st Place Winner!! Readington Middle School earned 2nd Place Honors. Additional participating schools included: Alexander Batcho Intermediate School, St. Ann School, Assumption Catholic School, St. Bartholomew School, Branchburg Central Middle School, Immaculate Conception School (Somerville), St. James School (Woodbridge), and St. Matthew School (Edison). Congratulations to all of these young scholars!

Principal Sr. Jean of St. Matthias School said, "Thank you for the opportunity to participate and for the photos of our team. It was a great event, and of course, we are delighted for our students. The presence of your students and staff made for a warm and welcoming environment.  The questions represented all facets of curriculum, most were quite challenging.  We look forward to next year."

Any schools who missed the opportunity this year should contact Vickie Tarentino at, so she can personally follow up for next year's event.  It's a great meeting of young minds and competition on an academic level.
