Activities:  The Academic Decathlon class is an intense study in ten academic areas.  The course consists of students from all high school grade levels (9-12) and is designed to include students from all academic backgrounds.  Each nine-member team selected from the class of students consists of three “A” students, three “B” students and three “C” students.  In addition to a seven-minute interview, a one-hour essay, SuperQuiz, and two speeches (four minutes prepared and two minutes impromptu), written comprehensive exams are given in music, art history, language/literature, mathematics, economics, social science and science.  A different focal topic is provided each year. The topic for 2018-2019 will be "The 1960s: A Transformational Decade" with a science focus on Laser Technology.
