Academic Decathlon Team Competes in California State Finals
After being named the "Overall Winner" in the Archdiocese of San Francisco Academic Decathlon competition, the St. Raymond School Academic Decathlon team traveled to Sacramento last weekend to compete in the California State Finals. Competing against ten schools, St. Raymond students placed third in the Logic Quiz and Mia C. placed third in Math.
The Academic Decathlon is a competition for students in grades 6-8, consisting of ten events. Two are collaborative team efforts – a logic quiz with twenty rigorous thinking problems, and a super quiz with fifty multiple choice questions on 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).
The Academic Decathlon team included the following students, Jack G., Mia C., Chloe P., McKenna K., Mathilde S., Camile P., Carson S., Amelia A., Langley W., Emily W., Sarah M., Finnan M., Nick R., and Alyssa T. We are very proud of these St. Raymond students for their dedication and hard work!
