The Private Schools Interscholastic Association District Competition was held on Friday March 24th at Immanuel Lutheran School in Giddings. Grace Lutheran School was extremely well represented by our students. Out of 12 other private schools, Grace Lutheran School had a combined 32 Top Ten Finishes!

This year we are proud to announce that a record number of 8 Grace Lutheran Mustangs are headed to the PSIA State Competition. Approximately 1,600 students from across Texas will participate in the 2023 Private Schools Interscholastic Association Academic State Meets to be held on May 6 at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth. We are so proud of all our students and look forward to these young scholars competing in State.

State Qualifiers:

Wyatt Tompkins (1st-Listening Skills) Charles Henderson (2nd-Mathematics and 1st-Spelling) Everett Ogrodowicz (2nd-Music Memory) Elias Ogrodowicz (1st-Music Memory) Elise Ogrodowicz (2nd-Music Memory) Augustine Colanter (2nd-Ready Writing) Jackson Havers (2nd-Ready Writing) Collin Jahnke (1st-Spelling)

PSIA was born out of multiple requests from parents of private and home-schooled students while the organization’s founder served as Director of Academic Development for the University Interscholastic League (UIL) in Austin. The overarching goal of academic competition, however, remains similar to that established by both the UIL and the PSIA charter members--the improvement of schools and individuals through the pursuit of excellence in academic competition. (

PSIA is pleased to offer this most comprehensive extracurricular academic program in the nation to all private, parochial, charter and grade 1-8 home schools in Texas. We believe that participation makes a lifelong difference for many of these students. (
