Individual Scores over 9,000[edit]

The following people have confirmed scores of 9,000 points or more in official Academic Decathlon competitions. Each person is ranked only once, unless he/she broke 9,000 in different years (accomplishments that should be honored separately; see DDSIC:Policies#Recording_Top_Scorers).

Key[edit]

Green background indicates top score at nationals

From 1968 to 1999, students independently researched all or most of testable material. From 2001 to 2010, most study material was provided, but some questions came from independent research. In 2000 and starting again in 2011, all test questions came from the USAD guides.
