Academic Decathlon is the premiere national academic competition. Students study seven subject areas and compete by taking objective multiple choice tests in each: language and literature, science, social science, art, music, math, and economics mostly based on a centralized theme. In addition, students will write essays, give speeches, and interview for the subjective portion of the competition. Participation is impressive on college applications and helpful in all collegiate disciplines, since the nature of the program is incredibly academic and competitive, covering multiple subject areas simultaneously.
Gold, Silver and Bronze medals are awarded for individual events and total scores. Winning teams advance through the local, regional and state levels of competition. State champions go on to compete at the national level.
Any student who enjoys learning and competition is welcome to join.
