• National Team

    We are a supportive and hard-working team made of 24 students, and twelve of us have qualified to participate in the National Academic Decathlon competition at the end of April. This is the first time in four years Renaissance has been eligible for this honor, and our students have been working for months to represent Idaho at the national competition. Right now, we are looking for kind-hearted souls who would be willing to sponsor our resilient Decathletes in their quest to become national champions!  

    We anticipate the total team cost of the tournament to be over $7,500. West Ada is generously helping to cover the $600 team registration fee, however, we are asking the community to help support us.
