picture of Super QuizAs part of National and State programs, the East Bay Region Academic Decathlon, formerly the Contra Costa County Academic Decathlon, is a competitive event for high school students aimed at encouraging and honoring scholastic accomplishments. The students compete as individuals and teams in a series of ten academic tests and demonstrations, including: art, economics, language and literature, mathematics, music, science, essay, interview, speech (prepared and impromptu) and SuperQuiz (a team-relay event).

A complete team consists of nine full-time students, grades 9-12, with a maximum of three students in each of the following divisions:


Honors 3.75 - 4.00 GPA
Scholastic 3.00 - 3.74 GPA
Varsity 2.99 GPA and below
  • Contestants may compete in a higher division than their own GPA, but not in a lower division.
  • All team members participate in all 10 events. How the events work.
  • Only six scores count for the final team standing in the competition – the top two Honors scores, the top two Scholastic scores and the top two Varsity scores. Therefore, schools may enter with fewer than nine members and still be eligible for team awards as long as there are at least two Honor, Scholastic and Varsity members.
  • Schools may enter a maximum of two teams.
