The Academic Decathlon is an extraordinary platform that not only tests students’ intellectual prowess but also cultivates a profound appreciation for knowledge, teamwork, and self-confidence.
Much like the ancient Greek decathlon, which featured grueling physical trials, the Academic Decathlon is a true test of academic strength. It comprises ten exhilarating events, each showcasing a unique facet of a student’s intellectual capabilities. These events encompass a wide range of subjects, including art, music, language and literature, mathematics, economics, science, and social science.
