The Academic Decathlon is an extracurricular activity/course in which schools compete nationwide in ten different subject areas that include: Language and Literature, Social Science, Art, Music, Science, Mathematics, Economics, Interview, Speech, and Essay. The competitions have a theme each year, which provides a focus for the subject content materials. (Some past examples are “The Renaissance”, “China”, and “The Civil War”)
The subjects themselves are meant to prepare students for topics and issues they will likely be addressing in their academic future. The class focuses on developing/improving skills in each content area commensurate with the current level of the students' abilities.
