Academic Games

Moderator: Benjamin Schrader

Seton LaSalle Academic Games program generally includes about 30 students, and nearly half of those students qualify for the National Tournament.

Academic Games participants compete in one or more of six different events. Players first learn to play at their schools, and compete against students from other schools in their area. Students may then qualify to compete at Regional events and the National Tournament.

The six events are:

EQUATIONS: Regular mathematics, ranging from the six basic operations at the beginning to very sophisticated math at the High School levels
ON-SETS: The mathematics of Set Theory
LINGUISHTIK: Applied grammar, vocabulary and writing skills
PRESIDENTS: Knowledge of the cultural and political events of the U.S. Presidents
PROPAGANDA: Recognition of various techniques of persuasion taken from real-life advertisements and political approaches and normal human interactions
WORLD EVENTS: Current Events of the most recent year, plus a Theme for the year, such as "The 1980's," "Space Exploration," "Women in World History."

Academic Games Leagues of America was created to develop "thinking kids" who receive recognition and awards in the same way sports champions are honored. To find out more visit:
