This year our annual Summer Essay contest went NATIONAL! Sponsored by the Association of Classical Christian Schools (ACCS), thirty-eight high schools around the nation participated, and Wilberforce still took TWO of the top scores. The goal of this contest is to encourage young people to consider some of the major cultural questions of our time, reflect on the impact, and write about it. Read the impressive essays below.
Congratulations to David Jen('25) and Joshua Jen ('24)
