Academic Decathlon is a competition held during the winter season that asks students to learn about many aspects of one topic — a historical event or area of the world. Students show their knowledge of art, economics, literature, history, and music about the topic, as well as math and science. They also write an essay, give a speech, and complete an interview. Each student must compete in all 10 events, giving them a complete overview of the topic.
The La Lumiere Academic Decathlon team was created during the '08-'09 school year. Since then, the team won the Small School State Championship in '10-'11, and competed in the Online Nationals in '10-'11 and '11-'12.
