The Academic Pentathlon (USAP) is an academic competition involving five academic fields of study (math, social sciences, science, literature, and fine arts). It is run by the USAD (United States Academic Decathlon). The exact topics involved vary from year to year, but typically include topics from both the sciences and the humanities.
The Academic Pentathlon prepares students for success in college and careers by building 21st century skills in communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and character. Academic Pentathlon is an exciting five-event competition for grades six, seven, and eight. The program engages students of all achievement levels in a variety of challenging academic events. Under the guidance of an adult coach, teams of students prepare for competition in the subject areas of fine arts (art and music), literature (including essay analysis), math, science, and social sciences.
