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
