Academic Decathlon is the premier academic competition for high school students. It rewards strengths at both the team and individual level in six written tests (in music, art, language and literature, mathematics, economics, and social science). At regional competition, three communications tests (an interview, an essay and a prepared and impromptu speech) are added. The material to study is both rigorous and unique; it is often not the same as what might be studied in the standard classroom. Teams consist of nine students in grades 9-12. All GPAs are needed, since a team contains only three students from each category: honors, scholastic, and varsity students. A strong team contains excellent competitors from every grade point category. Your current level is not as important as your ability to learn. Come discover what you are truly capable of.
