Academic Pentathlon

Stanislaus County Academic Pentathlon

The Academic Pentathlon is an exciting one-day, five-event academic competition for 7th and 8th grade students. After weeks of academic coaching, team studying and individual preparation, Pentathletes gather on competition day to test their knowledge in Literature, Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Speech and Fine Arts. The culminating event of the competition is the Super Quiz, which is the only event open to the public. Team members are brought together to compete in a battle of wits against other participating teams. It is an exciting and challenging event before a cheering crowd of parents, students and supporters.  Each team is composed of a maximum of 18 students placed in categories based on their GPA.  This team composition gives students the opportunity to develop skills for working with students of different ability levels, motivation and interests.
