Leadership and Competition-Based Activities

Club Advisor(s) Description
Academic Decathlon 
  • Michelle Maresh
  • Joanna Petersen
Wisconsin Academic Decathlon is a state-wide Scholastic Competition for high school students from both the public and private schools throughout the State. This unique educational opportunity is for A, B & C level students--not just the "elite" student. The program provides opportunities for students to experience the challenges of rigorous team and individual competition.
Academic Team - Language Arts Tracy VandeWalle

We compete against squads from other schools in a test of literary knowledge. The competition consists of two parts:

  • Essay component (based upon an assigned text or texts) completed prior to the live competition; and
  • Collaborative "Quiz Bowl" component (in which the team members collaboratively answer questions about literature, authors, and analysis in a timed environment).
Academic Team - Math Mari Tomita Bonnie Gonzales You do not need to be an "A" math student; you simply need to enjoy the subject. We compete in the Metro Math League once a month from October to March. We also compete one Saturday in February at St. Norbert College. These competitions help prepare us for the final, city-wide competition at the end of March.
Academic Team - Social Studies   The competition consists of three rounds with a five-member team. Each team submits one written question and answer sheet to be scored. At the end of Round 2, the highest scoring teams will compete in the final round.
Academic Team - Science Jennifer Cherek

The Science Academic Team participates in a competition of scientific knowledge and skills. It consists of up to three rounds against teams from other schools. Questions are based in Biology, Chemistry and Physics, but you do not need to be a master at all subjects.
