Our purpose is to promote learning and academic excellence among students of varying achievement levels by developing and providing multidisciplinary academic competitions using USAD-based curricula and to support extra-curricula activities of the Academic Decathlon course.
Each year we study a different theme. This year it was Russia. Students compete in 10 areas, including math, science, social science, economics, art, music, language and literature, speech, interview, and essay.
We are a rookie team this year with a new coach and all new competitors. While we did not medal in the regional competition this year, we had 5 of our team in the top 10 of 12 different catagories/levels.
