Middle School Academic Bowl Team

Wesleyan’s Middle School Academic Bowl Team is a dynamic group which competes in round robin tournaments in the Atlanta area. Members are given the opportunity to display their grasp of science, math, English, sports, geography, current events, history, literature, and pop culture. Participants win points by correctly answering a series of toss-up questions and bonuses.

Our goal is to create an active learning environment that is kid-friendly and fun. All students have areas of special interest that make their knowledge valuable to the academic bowl team. We hope to inspire our students to enjoy a life-long love of learning.

The Academic Bowl team meets once per week all year long to prepare for our competitions. Please contact Dr. Pat McCoy for more information.

Wolfpost is a semester-long commitment during which staff members will gain an in-depth understanding of how to layout, write, edit, and take photographs.
