What is Academic Decathlon?
It’s a competitive academic activity where students pit their academic wit, interview and speech skills, and essay writing abilities with other students from all over Alaska. There are three primary goals:
• Students will become academically challenged through competition.
• Combating overspecialization.
• Promote the ability to communicate.
• Fine Arts
• Language & Literature
• Social Studies
• Impromptu speech
• Timed essay
• Oral Interview
Who can join?
Anyone who loves to learn. The competition is divided so that you compete against those with the same GPA range. The three levels are: Honors (3.75 and up), Scholastic (3.0-3.74), and Varsity (2.99 and below). Your GPA for classification is based on the previous two years of academic courses.
