Academic Decathlon

  • Purpose:

    The US Academic Decathlon is a challenging academic competition. There are ten events including math, science, language, art, music, economics, social science, essay, speech and interview. Students are strongly encouraged to take the honors-level class during their junior and senior years to prepare for the competition. The team competes at the district, regional, state and national level.

    Successful decathletes win medals, earn a letter, and there are scholarships at the state level and beyond. The competition is one of the most prestigious things a student can have on their college application.

    Meetings:

    The class meets daily. Students in the class meet weekly after school and study on their own time. Summer and weekend meetings/practice will be announced when scheduled.

    Requirements:

    The Academic Decathlon is open to any junior or senior from any academic background. Freshmen and sophomores are encouraged to join the Academic Octathlon with Coach Hartman.
