Academic Decathlon Team 
 
 

What is the Decathlon?

The Decathlon is an academic competition held annually by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles each March. This year, approximately one hundred Catholic schools from throughout the Archdiocese will have teams of students in grades 6 – 8. There are ten events. Two are collaborative team efforts – a logic quiz with 20 rigorous thinking problems, and a super quiz with 50 multiple choice questions on five broad academic themes. The remaining eight events test individual knowledge of the Roman Catholic doctrine, English and spelling, Literature, Science, Mathematics, Current Events, Social Studies, and Fine Arts (music and art). Points are awarded as follows: the Logic Quiz is worth 8000 points; the Super Quiz is worth 8000 points; and each individual event is worth 1000 points for a total possible of 24000 points. Awards are given for individual and team performance, and the winning school team from each geographic diocese competes in a national championship the first Saturday of May each year.

 

Holy Trinity school is excited to field a team this year! We are currently seeking students in grades 5 – 8 for the team and for alternates. Students in grade 5 are not eligible to compete this year but will be eligible next year, and we highly encourage them to come practice with us this year!
