To qualify for the state championship, twenty Academy students representing six subject areas competed at the regional tournament for Academic Super Bowl on April 16. Academic Super bowl is a multi-disciplinary academic competition that has a central theme; this year’s theme was the Fertile Crescent. Two of the Academy’s six teams, Math and English, qualified for the state championship that was held on May 4. This was the second appearance for both of those teams in the past three years.
