Support Alaska's Youth and Alaska's Future Workforce!

The Alaska Academic Decathlon brings together high school students to compete in ten subjects based on a yearly theme. The program builds valuable social and emotional skills while improving student achievement and building confidence. It also engages students of all abilities (teams must include students of a wide spectrum of GPAs), often attracting non-joiners and students who are underperforming in school.

"I love this program, not only for the academic challenges it gives us, and the engaging curricular approach to the various subject areas, but also for the opportunity it gives to boost the self confidence of our participants. I’ve seen our students grow as learners, speakers, and team members through this program. From the bottom of my heart, QUYANAQPAK!" - Joanna Wassillie, Bering Strait School District

The program culminates with a four-day state competition on the University of Alaska (UAA) Campus where students interact with teams from around the state, UAA faculty and staff, and statewide high school educators. The event kicks off with a college/job fair and ends with an award ceremony where students earn medals and scholarships.

A program of the Southeast Regional Resource Center (aka SERRC - Alaska's Educational Resource Center) - a non-profit agency that does not receive dedicated funding from any state or federal entity, the Alaska Academic Decathlon and Pentathlon must generate their own income stream. Funded entirely by partners and sponsors, these skill-building programs depend on Alaska's businesses and foundations to impact more than 300 students from 20 different communities on an ongoing basis.
