The mission of National Academic League in Davis School District is to foster student collaboration in learning, develop and practice academic skills, promote good sportsmanship, build confidence, and create friendships.

National Academic League is an inter-school academic competition. Teams of students compete with each other to demonstrate their knowledge of mathematics, science, English, and social studies.  Games consist of four quarters, two of which (first and fourth) are based on questions answered by individual students. In the second quarter, a group of students from each team race against each other to solve a problem or answer a question.  The third quarter assesses the knowledge, logic, and communication skills of students as they make presentations on a topic assigned at the beginning of the game. 

There are approximately 15 different academic leagues across the United States. Davis School District is a single league, divided into a north and south division, and all 16 junior high schools within it field a team.  Teams of students are led by a teacher mentor who supports and coaches them.  The winning team/school from each division play each other in the district championship game, the winner of which moves on to compete against champions from the other leagues in a single elimination series.

The NAL season begins in January and runs through February with the national competition beginning in March.
