Los Angeles County Mock Trial Competition
St. Joseph Catholic School students in grades 7-8 have the opportunity to compete in the Annual Los Angeles County Mock Trial Competition.
The Los Angeles Mock Trial Program is an academic competition in which senior high schools and middle schools compete at the county level. This year, participation is expected to include over 2,000 students in Los Angeles County. The trial itself is a simulation of a criminal case, in which students portray each of the principals in the cast of courtroom characters. Student teams study a hypothetical case, conduct legal research, and receive guidance from volunteer attorneys in courtroom procedures and trial preparation. Students participate as lawyers, witnesses, court clerks, and bailiffs, thus acquiring a working knowledge of our judicial system. The Mock Trial Program encourages young people to develop their analytical abilities and communication skills while gaining increased self-confidence.
Students in 5th-8th Grade are given the opportunity to play for Catholic Youth Organization sports. Parents are encouraged to assist in coaching and receive training from the Play Like a Champion program. These sports include, but are not limited to: boys and girls volleyball, basketball, track and field, soccer, and flag football.
Students in grades 4-8 are elected to positions such as spokesperson, secretary, publicist, spirit and athletics, religious affairs, or class representative through a school wide voting and election process. Students vote for the five candidates that they believe will uphold the duties and responsibilities of our Student Council. Along with the five main council members, grades 4-8 hold class representative elections where one member from each class is elected to be on the Student Council. Students must uphold being a Disciple of Christ, Tenacious Scholar and 21st Century Learner while being in office. Students also must maintain a 3.0 GPA and Outstanding / Good in Behavior and Work Habits.
