Clubs & Activities
Academic Challenge is a battery of tests created by Worldwide Youth in Science and Engineering. The subject matter tested is drawn from senior high and freshman level college curricula in the areas of mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology, english, engineering graphics, and computer science. Varsity and JV teams are each made up of 14 students, and each student takes a test from two different subject areas. Their scores are compared to those of students from other schools, and they earn a certain number of points based on their rank. A student can advance from Regionals to Sectionals and from Sectionals to State in a certain subject area, or the team as a whole can advance based on the combined points earned by the team members.
Students may receive letters in academic areas such as band, choir, clubs, journalism, etc.
