Students often join athletic teams or clubs that promote social activities or sports. But what about those students whose interests are more academic in nature?
If you are looking for an intellectually challenging extracurricular experience, Academic Decathlon might be just the thing! Acadeca is a competition that allows high school students to compete against one another and improve their knowledge in many different subject areas, from music to economics to public speaking. It has a lot to offer students and promotes community and an atmosphere of learning at your school. It's also a great opportunity to build friendships with other like-minded students who are passionate about acquiring new knowledge and building upon their study and academic skills.
It always starts with one. Whether you're a freshman who just heard about the program, or a teacher who competed once yourself, you can be the person who brings Academic Decathlon to life at your school! So, gather your friends, find a coach, download the curriculum, grab some snacks and let's get started!
