The United States Academic Decathlon is a nationwide Academic Team competition. Based on the model of the athletic
decathlon held in the Olympic games, the Academic Decathlon requires participants to prepare for ten different events. Students are tested in the following categories:
|Language & Literature
||Super Quiz (topic changes)
When it comes to Academic Decathlon the Columbus philosophy is a very simple one and can be summed up in one simple statement.
"Students will get out of this program only what they put into it"! The focus of our program is in "participation" rather than
"competition". We encourage all students to become involved because of the opportunities this program has to offer and we believe
that just by participating in Academic Decathlon our students have already "won".
We are pleased to announce that this year we have once again set a record. We have a total of 81 students signed up to take part in
the competition. We wish them all the best of luck!
