April 30, 2012


La Lumiere School’s State Championship Academic
Decathlon team placed tenth out of eighteen teams competing in the small school division at the
United States Academic Decathlon National Competition held this spring. This is the second
year in a row that La Lumiere has earned the right to compete at the National Level. In March, the
team earned a 2nd place finish in the Indiana State competition.
Students compete in the Academic Decathlon in three divisions determined by GPA; Honors
Division, Scholastic Division and Varsity Division.
John Lake, a senior from La Porte, earned a Bronze medal in the Essay in the Honors Division and
Hyeonji (Ginny) Lee, a senior from Seoul,
South Korea, earned a Silver in Mathematics and a Silver in Science in the Honors Division.
With an enrollment of just over 200, La Lumiere School competed and won against schools 6 to 10
times its size.
