  • 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.

    Any student who likes to learning and competition is welcome to join.

    The 11th and 12th grade team meets during the 5th period class.
