Cologne Academy participated in a Battle of the Books sponsored by Friends of Education.

Teams of students read a variety of books on an assigned list and then answered questions. Seven teams competed internally at the school in January.

The winning team advanced to the finals held at Yinghua Academy in Minneapolis on May 14. Cologne Academy and St. Croix Prep tied for first place.

In an exciting tie-breaker, Cologne Academy finished in 2nd place.
