The Academic Junior High Decathlon is a diocesan-wide competition for students in grades 6-8. Students compete in ten events that test their skills in logic, academic themes, and individual knowledge of Roman Catholic doctrine, English, Literature, Science, Mathematics, Current Events, Social Studies, and Fine Arts (Art and Music). A new optional writing component has also been added.
Stella Maris Academy has done very well over the years and in fact, SMA came in second in 2018.
