Folsom, Calif. – The Sacramento County Office of Education applauds Folsom High School, from the Folsom Cordova Unified School District, for achieving the highest score in the 2023 Sacramento County Academic Decathlon.

The Folsom team-that also won in 2022-now advances to the State Finals, which conclude on March 25 in Santa Clara. Commendations also go to Bella Vista High School for reaching a high score that qualifies them to be invited to the state competition.
