Anabel Lopez, Charter Day School’s Student Head Coach and member of the first-place Experimental Design team, commented, “This year’s Science Olympiad has been the most challenging and rewarding season we’ve experienced. Virtual Science Olympiad has shown how determined Charter Day School is and nothing can stop us!” In the event, teams designed, conducted, and reported the findings of an experiment conducted solely on site.

They are great role models to their classmates and developing into the leaders of tomorrow!” Charter Day School is one of four public charter schools managed by The Roger Bacon Academy, Inc. founded in 1999 by education pioneer Baker Mitchell.
