Could someone who knows more about the Davis High team write about that instead of just having this page reiterate the generic stuff about AcDec that everyone knows already?

Academic Decathlon — which can be referred to as AcaDeca, AcDec or AcaDec — is a program for high school kids to compete against other high schools in the following 10 academic areas:

  • Math
  • Economics
  • Art
  • Science
  • Music
  • Language and Literature
  • Speech
  • Social Science
  • Essay
  • Interview

The first level of competition is at the county level, from which teams move on to state and then national level. Some schools put way too much time and effort into this program, but it can be fun for those who don't take themselves too seriously.

Academic Decathlon is administered by the USAD.
