Congratulations to Northland's inaugural Academic Decathlon for placing 5th at the Frisco State competition after competing with public and private schools from across the state. The 2020-21 NCS Academic Decathlon team includes Riley Frank, Brooklyn Freeman, Danielle Rangel, Angela Vu, Ian Wietstruck, and Charles Xie.

These students immersed themselves in a deep study of this year's National Academic Decathlon theme, The Cold War. Their study and competition included ten subjects: math, science, social science, art, music, language and literature, economics, speech, interview, and essay. We are so proud of the talent and perseverance of our NCS Academic Decathletes! We are looking forward to next year's national theme: WATER: A Most Essential Resource.

Students should contact the Academic Decathlon coach, Mrs. Freeman, for information about joining.
Pictured above, each team member received a monetary scholarship ($300) due to the team placement, and Riley Frank also received a scholarship ($1500) for his individual score and placement.
