What is Scholastic Hi-Q?

The quest for knowledge is an enriching and lifelong endeavor.

Produced by WSIU Television since 1985, Scholastic Hi-Q is an academically-based game show featuring high school teams from the Southern Illinois region. It's a single elimination tournament in which 32 teams compete.

Scholastic Hi-Q is a fun and exciting way of demonstrating the importance of a broad-based education that also exemplifies the public educational and informational mission of WSIU Public Broadcasting and Southern illinois University.

Scholastic Hi-Q provides area schools an excellent opportunity to display their academic skills while promoting school spirit.


About the Show

Episodes are taped at the beginning of the school year and then shown on a weekly basis through the spring. A season consists of 31 episodes.

Students are not only in front of the camera as contestants. The Hi-Q production staff is composed of many Southern Illinois University student employees and volunteers who gain valuable professional experience working with the WSIU Television production staff.
