Description of Club


The Orange County Academic Decathlon consists of ten events: essay,  speech,  interview, economics, math, science or social Studies, music, art, literature/language arts, and the Super Quiz.  The students GPA determines who they will compete against.  There are three GPA catagories:  Honors (3.75-4.00), Scholastic (3.00-3.74), and Varsity (2.99 and under).  There are nine members (Three from each GPA category) to a team.  Individual scores are compiled to create a team score. 


Last year our team won over 55 individual medals on route to taking first place in our division and first place in Super Quiz.  Team members also won a total of $1700.00 in scholarhips.  Our team was led by senior, Keith Garlow, and juniors, Bao Minh Hoang and Kimberly Vu, who each won 2nd place overall in their respective G.P.A. categories. 


We are always looking for new members.  If you are interested in joining, please pick up an application in room 215.
