Division Champions by Year[edit]

Until 2009, California Academic Decathlon placed teams in large school (I), medium school (II), and small school (III) divisions based on their county's enrollment.

Starting in 2009, the 20 top-scoring teams after regionals competed in Division I, teams seeded 21-40 competed in Division II, and all remaining teams competed in Division III.

In 2013 only, Division I was reduced to the top 10 teams, Division II included teams 11-30, and Division III included all remaining teams.
