Academic Team

Students have the opportunity to compete in various academic events, including Quick Recall, Written Assessment, Composition, and Future Problem Solving (FPS).  The FPS team meets separately in order to develop their problem solving skills and to bond as a group.  The Academic Team season lasts from September to January, and weekly matches are held with other high school teams in the region.  The State of Kentucky hosts the JV Challenge (November) and Governor’s Cup (January) tournaments where teams from across the state engage in intense competition.

Moderator(s): Mr. Michael Fay

Interested students can join the Academic Team by contacting the faculty moderator to sign up. Members are expected to attend regular practices and matches in order to remain in good standing, except in the event of illness or other extenuating circumstance. Participation in athletic events and completing school work are considered valid excuses for absences.

Moderator(s): Mr. Michael Fay and Mr. Doug Boh
