Home-schooled students who take classes through a Beaverton program out-dueled students from some of the biggest high schools in the area for the right to represent Oregon at the 2015 National High School Mock Trial Championship.
In the finals of a state mock trial competition Saturday, students affiliated with Village Home Education Resource Center ousted West Linn High School, the 2014 state champions.
The eight-member Village Home team now advances to the national competition May 14-16 in Raleigh, N.C.
“It’s incredible just to think about how much work we put into it,” said junior Julia Mueller, 17. “We’re all still in shock.”
