Octathlon is an academic competition for ninth and tenth-grade students. It is designed to serve as a learning experience and feeder program for Academic Decathlon.
Octathlon is comprised of eight events, including exams in art, economics, language/literature, mathematics, music, science and social science. The Super Quiz event is an oral relay over all subjects.
Teams from across Frisco ISD competed in the regional Octathlon tournament at the end of April at Wakeland High School. Regional scores were then submitted and ranked across the state.

Centennial Team 1 - 10th in the state
Reedy - 12th in the state
