There will be a total of 4 rounds followed by the final round. Each round will have two teams of 3 people playing.

The team with the highest amount of points will go to the final round. The members of the winning team will then compete against one another in the final round to be the 2020 Scholastic Champion and take home the grand prize – 80,000 AAdvantage Miles provided by American Airlines.
