The Catholic Schools Academic League (CSAL), or Quick Recall, is an academic competition for students in grades 4-8. The students compete with other schools in the Archdiocese in both the fall (6,7,8), and the spring (4,5) answering questions. The questions cover all subject areas including art and music. They also answer questions about a specific novel. That novel is decided by the Archdiocese for each individual grade level prior to the start of the season.
