Middle School Academic Team

Middle School Academic Team starts in mid-September and runs through March. Students practice from 3 – 4pm once a week after school. The team is divided into Varsity (8th grade students) and Junior Varsity (6th and 7th grade students). Seton participates in the Fayette County Academic League, with matches against other Fayette County schools once a week running from October to December, culminating in a final bracketed tournament with all thirteen teams in attendance!

Seton also participates in KAAC’s Governor’s Cup competitions (6th grade Showcase, District, Regional, and State) which begin in December and run through March. These tournaments are held on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Students have the opportunity to participate on the Quick Recall team, Composition (students respond to a predetermined prompt), or take written assessments in five categories: Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, and Arts and Humanities.

Academic Team is an opportunity for academically inclined students to thrive and lead in our community! Contact Ms. Embry Jacobs, Middle School Academic Team Coach, at
