The Academic Decathlon serves a twofold purpose. First, it provides the opportunity for high school students to experience the challenges and rewards of academic competition. The team is made up of nine members: three A, three B and three C students. These students represent Lakeview in local, regional and state competitions. Second, the Academic Decathlon Team gains positive recognition for the school by promoting goodwill with other schools and displaying Patriot Pride. Any student is eligible to try out for the team. Applications are accepted, and team selections are made in May for the following year. Consideration may also be given for applications received in the fall.
