Academic Pentathlon

Each year, OCS middle school students elect to participate in the Orange County Academic Pentathlon. 

What is the OC Academic Pentathlon?

The Academic Pentathlon is an exciting five-event competition for 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. The program encourages and rewards academic excellence among students of all ability levels. Students in public and private schools compete as individuals and team members in a series of five academic tests, including: mathematics, literature, social science, science, and essay.

Participants research and study the content outlined in the Academic Pentathlon Study Guide published annually. Pentathlon curriculum is aligned with California state content standards and Common Core State Standards.

The program culminates with an awards ceremony. The top scoring teams and individual students are awarded medals and plaques.
