Each year, a team of students in grades 6-8 prepares for months as test takers and study buddies for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles Junior High Academic Decathlon at Cal State Long Beach. This past Sunday, March 3rd, Holy Family completed with over one hundred Catholic schools compete academically in this all-day event. The decathlon consists of two team events – a logic exam and super quiz – and eight individual exams. Holy Family consistently represents itself very well each year.

A special thanks to the coaches,  Briselda and Jake Mota, Diane Evans, Fran Smiland and to all the parents who contributed in any way to help the students succeed.

Academic Decathlon Team, we are all so incredibly proud of your hard work and dedication… GO KNIGHTS!
