Academic Games Leagues of America (AGLOA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing “Thinking Kids” of character, excellence, and integrity. AGLOA provides a series of Academic Games competitions throughout the nation resulting in a national championship tournament in late April each year. Students who excel academically have a chance to compete and be rewarded for their accomplishments. Academic Games tournaments challenge students to use higher order thinking skills in the subjects of Language Arts, English, History and Mathematics. Players receive recognition and awards in the same way that sports champions are honored.
Academic Games practices are held every Thursday from 3:00-4:30. Participants must be picked up from the school office promptly at 4:30pm.
The sponsors of the Academic Games Club is Alaa Alkurd and Christopher Moore. You can contact them via telephone or email at 504-218-5058 or Alaa.Alkurd@sbpsb.org and Christopher.Moore@sbpsb.org.
