Stella Maris Academy takes First Place in Academic Decathlon!
On March 3, 2012, Mater Dei High School hosted the Diocese of San Diego Academic Decathlon. Stella Maris Academy competed against 18 other schools and won First Place!
The Academic Decathlon is a competition for students in grades 6-8. There are ten events. Two are collaborative team efforts – a logic quiz with 20 rigorous thinking problems, and a super quiz with 50 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). Awards are given for individual and team performance, and the winning school team from each geographic diocese competes in a state championship the first Saturday of May each year. This year, SMA is that school for the Diocese of San Diego! Congratulations to our Decathletes!
