LHS ACADEC 2022-2023
The United States Academic Decathlon (USAD) is a program that provides high school students an opportunity to experience the challenges of rigorous academic competition through participation in team activities. In addition, the Academic Decathlon involves members of the business/industry as active supporters of a program promoting academic excellence. Long term relationships, developed through joint participation, benefit the students and the community.
Region and state contests are held for schools categorized as large, medium and small. Based on a point system, the highest scoring team represents Texas at the national USAD competition. All members of the winning team receive scholarships. Texas provides $150,000 in scholarship money each year. Registration fees and the Texas Education Agency contribute to this scholarship fund.
The Academic Decathlon is designed to include students of three academic levels. Each nine-member team consists of three Honor (3.8-4.0) students, three Scholastic (3.2-3.7999) students, and three Varsity (2.0-3.1999) students. The Academic Decathlon is the only competition to award scholarships to Varsity students!
Academic Decathlon looks great for college applications. It is a nationally recognized academic competition. Also, students who compete in AcDec tend to be very prepared for success in college! Academic Decathlon is a chance to meet new people and have a great time learning! The topics change from year-to-year. For example, the focus for the 2022-2023 school year is “The American Revolution.”
