学术十项全能

The Academic Junior High Decathlon, held the first Saturday in March each year, is a competition for students in grades 6 through 8. The Decathlon consists of ten events. Two are collaborative team efforts – a Logic Quiz with 20 rigorous thinking problems and a Super Quiz with 50 multiple choice questions covering five broad academic themes. The remaining eight events test individual 知识 of Roman Catholic doctrine, 英语, 文学, 科学, 数学, 时事, 社会研究, and Fine Arts (Art and/or Music). Awards are given for individual and team performances and the winning school from each geographic diocese moves on to compete in a state championship the first Saturday of May each year.

Each school’s team consists of ten students, eight of whom each test in one of the individual subject areas. All ten students participate in both the Logic Quiz and the Super Quiz. Any students in grades 6 through 8 may join the group starting in early fall. Meetings are held on Fridays immediately after school dismissal. 1月下旬, the candidates take a series of tests on the year’s content areas and the 10 best prepared students (regardless of grade) continue during February to fine-tune their skills, 知识, and practice working together as a team for the actual event in March. The ten finalists represent SMS at the diocesan event.
