St A’s Decathalon Team

2010 / 2011 Junior High Academic Decathalon Team St. Apollinaris is the only school to have won the State Championship three times – in 2001, 2005 and 2009!  The 2009 State Champions bested over 600 Catholic Schools in the state of California.  The Junior High Academic Decathlon is a ten event competition for students in 7th and 8th grades.  Two of the events are collaborative team efforts – a logic quiz with 20 rigorous thinking problems and a super quiz with 50 multiple choice questions of five broad academic themes.  The remaining eight events test individual knowledge of the Roman Catholic doctrine, English, Literature, Science, Mathematics, Current Events, Social Studies and Fine Arts (Art and Music).  Awards are given for individual and team performances.  The winning school team from each geographic diocese competes in a state championship the first Saturday in May.

This year, our 2010-2011 took a third place in logic, a first overall in the individual events and a first place in super quiz.  Overall, the St. A’s team took second place in the diocese.
