Academic Decathlon, otherwise abbreviated to Aca Deca, is an opportunity where students partake in a competition alongside team members against similar teams of other schools in Ventura County. The competition consist of 10 academic events. Student take tests in art, science, social science, music, econ, literature and math. All around a certain theme that is chosen each year. Students also give an interview, essay as well as speech. It is open to everyone as it is designed for students of all backgrounds, and grades. Teams consist of nine members which would be divided among three categories based on GPA (Honor, Scholastic and Varsity). One of the benefits of Aca Deca is that you gain knowledge on unorthodox topics and you go beyond your comfort zone to prepare you for your future. Another benefit is meeting an amazing variety of people who understand that love of learning and appreciate every quirk.
