Student teams from all seven CCPS high schools go head-to-head in three round competitions. In an effort to score the highest points, they have five seconds to answer short-answer questions from all academic subject areas. Academic Challenge is based on the long running quiz show It's Academic. Many CCPS high schools travel to Baltimore to participate on It's Academic, competing against other schools from around Maryland. WMH is working toward joining the competitors of It's Academic.
