In March, Berean Christian School, located in Fairview Heights, sent twelve students to the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) Prairie State Regional Student Convention. ACE Schools from all over Illinois and Iowa meet to compete in events spanning several categories. Berean competed well and took home 1st Place Overall School Award in “Academics”, 3rd Place Overall School Award in “Exhibits”, and 3rd Place Overall School Award in “Athletics”. Students placed well in many individual and group events. Students who place in events regionally can move on to compete in the International Student Convention which will be hosted at the New Mexico State University Campus this May.
