Academic Pentathlon » Home


The Academic Pentathlon, an exciting five-event competition for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders, was founded in 1984 to encourage and reward academic excellence among students of all ability levels.

The Academic Pentathlon provides a less restrictive environment for learning where individual leadership, cooperation, and peer support are incorporated as motivators. TEAM WORK IS THE HEART OF THE ACADEMIC PENTATHLON. Teachers and students work together to build a team. 

Established as an academic club on campus, the program provides a "safe" environment for academically motivated students of all ability levels. Some students will strive to make the Academic Pentathlon Team, while others just need peer support and a place to satisfy academic curiosity.
