    Academic Decathlon ("Acadec") is a nationally recognized program in which students are given the opportunity to excel academically through team competition.  In competition, students take tests in seven academic subjects: art, economics, language and literature, mathematics, music, science, and social science. They also compete in three other events, speech, essay and interview. Each year there is a theme to the curriculum. For general informaton on this year's theme, go to the USAD website. For information on State-level competitions go to AZAD website 
    For a good video introduction to academic decathlon, view this story made with the South Mountain Academic Decathlon team a few years back.  Introductory video - (too bad they misspelled "decathlon" throughout the story)
