Academic World Quest Team

Catholic Central High School Academic World Quest Team secures victory over Shaker High School, Shenendehowa High School, and the Academy of Holy Names on their win at the Local Competition held at Russel Sage College on Saturday, March 16th, 2019. 
This year's winning team of Paul Barnas, Michael Paglia, Lucas Kania and Sebastian Kania, captured the win with a total score of 83 points. Our team will be heading to Washington DC in April to compete at the national level. 

Academic World Quest is a national competition, hosted by the local World Affairs Council, that focuses on global affairs and U.S. foreign policy-based knowledge. Students prepare months in advance for the competition which consists of four students per team answering 100 questions total, over the course of ten rounds in varying categories such as: Global Refugee and Migration Crisis, How to Deal with North Korea, Space Policy among many others.
We wish them tremendous luck as they prepare for the National Competition.
Once again, congratulations to the CCHS Academic World Quest Team!
