Bishop DuBourg High School Scholar Bowl Academic Competition
The 2016-2017 school year was the first opportunity for Holy Cross Academy to send seventh and eighth grade teams to participate in the Scholar Bowl. Each participant takes a preliminary test consisting of fifty multiple choice questions in the areas of Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, Fine Arts and potpourri. Team scores are calculated by adding the scores of the four team members. The top two teams in sixth, seventh, and eighth grades respectively compete against each other in the Team Championships. In 2016-2017 HCA teams brought home numerous awards.
Seventh grade placed third individually and second in the team championship.
Eighth grade placed first and second individually, and won the Team Championship.
