Mission Statement

The mission of the United States Academic Decathlon is to promote learning and academic excellence among students of varying achievement levels by developing and providing multidisciplinary academic competitions using USAD-based curricula.

Description

The Academic Decathlon , was created to provide opportunities for all students to experience the challenges of rigorous team and individual academic competition. The ten-event academic program strives to foster a greater respect for knowledge, to promote wholesome inter-school academic competition, and to further develop student communication skills. A unique aspect of the Academic Decathlon is that it is designed to include students from all academic abilities and achievement levels. Each nine-member team consists of three "A" (Honor division), three "B" (Scholastic division), and three "C or below" (Varsity division) students. Each team member competes in all ten events against other students in their individual divisions. The Academic Decathlon emphasizes the personal and academic growth of each student who, by meeting the challenges with honesty and integrity, can reap the rewards of greater self-knowledge and self-confidence for the future.
