The California Academic Decathlon Association encourages and rewards academic
excellence by motivating and preparing students through cooperative and
competitive events. The Decathlon recognizes the achievements of all
youth and concentrates its efforts on secondary students from public and
private schools throughout the State of California. The Decathlon embodies a
partnership of businesses, foundations, and individuals in cooperation with the
educational community and county offices of education.
The San Joaquin County Office of Education sponsors the Annual Regional Academic
Decathlon each year which is held at the University of the Pacific in Stockton.
This championship is funded by the
County Office of Education with some expenses paid through the courtesy of the
San Joaquin County Office of Education Educational Foundation which provides
money to enhance and upgrade the program.
