Massachusetts Academic Decathlon is an academic competition in which teams of 9 high school students battle in 10 different events:
It's about daring to push your limits, to master college-level material and to practice skills, like public speaking, that might be wholly new to you. It's about the people you'll meet along the way -- the coaches who will mentor you, the competitors who will challenge you, and the teammates who will become your lifelong friends.Dr. Les Martisko
The 2020-21 Academic Decathlon season has officially started!
For this season, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all of our competitions, including Nationals, will be held online.
However, USAD is developing a platform for students to be able to deliver their speeches and conduct interviews, so the Regionals and States events will continue to with 10 events (though without Super Quiz).
Students and teams will still have the opportunity to win ribbons, medals and trophies!
Coaches can register their teams for the year HERE.
Judges can sign up for Speech & Interview at Regionals and States (all online) HERE!
