About the Academic Decathlon
The Academic Decathlon is a series of interscholastic competitions for high school teams nationwide. The Decathlon encourages, recognizes and rewards academic effort and excellence.
Itís All Teamwork
The Decathlon tests knowledge and academic skills - but isnít just for the class genius. One of the unique features of the Decathlon is that each team represents a range of achievement levels. The team consists of three students who have "A" averages, three with "B" averages and three with "C" averages. To prepare for competition, the team members begin working and studying together early in the fall. On competition day, all nine team members take the same tests, participate in the same events, and are judged by the same criteria. The teamís final score depends on the performances of ALL its members.
