An annual high school academic competition organized by the non-profit United States Academic Decathlon Association. The competition consists of seven multiple choice tests, two performance events, and an essay. Each team member competes in all ten events against other students in his or her division, and team scores are calculated using the top two overall individual scores from each team in all three divisions.  The ten events require knowledge in many academic disciplines. Students must take seven multiple choice tests in art, economics, language and literature, math, music, science and social science.  

This year, we are offering Academic Decathlon as a class. ANYONE can be in this class and you do earn elective credit for taking it!  Talk to Ms. Kwan and Ms. Crabtree for more info.

  • Math
  • Language & Literature
  • Economics
  • Music
  • Art
  • Science
  • Social Science
  • Speech
  • Impromptu
