For more information

Modeled after the college and high school club, our It's Academic team meets on Monday afternoons, from 2:45 to 4:00 pm. We practice on sets of questions from high school and middle school and participate mainly in tournaments for high school students but also in a few tournaments for middle schoolers only.

It's Academic is a good place to let our curious minds shine while enhancing our knowledge in many different subjects. It is a team work where we learn to respect each other, to acknowledge successes ... and to lose with grace and dignity! :)  Members of the Centennial High School It's Academic Club will come to our weekly meetings to mentor the middle schoolers.

Parents need to be involved  with transportation, moderating at some tournaments, bringing snacks, and fundraising. For this club to work, I need parents' help, and I especially want to thank those of you who were already on board last year. 

This club will meet on most Monday afternoons (except when there are faculty meetings or holidays-please see schedule listed below) from 2:45 to 4:00 pm; your child needs to walk home or to be picked up promptly at 4:00 pm (I cannot stay to watch him and he is not allowed to wait by himself on the school premises). Meeting dates are as follows for the 2016-2017 school year

17th and 24th,
