The Academic Decathlon team consists of nine students. Each team is made up of three Honor students, three Scholastic students, and three Varsity students. Students are placed in one of the three levels based on their grade point average. Every school year a new theme is chosen and students compete in ten events related to the theme like Art, language & Literature, Music, Economics, Mathematics, Science or Social Studies, Interview, Speech, Essay and Super Quiz (state level). The levels of competition are local, regional, state and national. Teams move to the next level based upon their overall scores. This is a great opportunity for students to showcase their abilities in an intellectual environment.

Honor = 3.75- 4.0 Scholastic = 3.00-3.75 Varsity = 0-2.99
