Academic Team

The Academic Team is a vibrant group of students from all grade levels who compete on a weekly basis against most of the other GCL schools in matches designed to test both knowledge of fact as well as trivia.

The matches have three distinct components:

  1. Alphabet Round: Twenty questions each beginning with the same letter of the alphabet
  2. Team Round: Broad variety of questions such as American government, English literature, physical science, math, fine arts, English literature, life science, and world history.
  3. Lightning Round: Thirty rapid-fire questions up for grabs by either team.

Additional Details:

  • The matches are held each Tuesday during the season at Cincinnati State. Matches begin at 3:30 p.m. and usually conclude by 5:00 or 5:30 p.m.
  • Each match has a varsity and a reserve team from each school.
  • Practices are held Tuesdays during the season in room 32. 
  • The season begins in early November and concludes in the middle of February.
  • New members are always welcome. Stop by room 32 for more information. We would love to have you join the team!
