Academic League

Picture yourself as a high school student, sitting at a table in front of TV cameras that are broadcasting live to the entire region. You are surrounded by teammates—fellow high school students. The moderator poses the first question, which you have five seconds to answer.

This is the countywide Academic League competition, which SDCOE’s iTV has been covering since the early 1970s. The 2023 competition is the first time the recorded and broadcast competition will take place since the pandemic.

High schools that participate in the Academic League put together teams that compete within four regional leagues across the county. Once league winners are selected, the champs of each league face off until the San Diego County Academic League champion team emerges.
