The 2015 National Tournament of Academic Excellence took place June 14 through June 16, 2015, at the Disney Contemporary Resort Hotel in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Grand Junction (representing team Colorado) finished in first place.
As in 2014, the tournament consists of four rounds in which all teams play in two rooms, followed by an elimination round. As in 2014, each preliminary round match is determined by the results of the previous match: each room contains one first-place, one second-place, one third-place, and (if applicable) one fourth-place team.
At the end of the preliminary rounds, the teams are seeded for the elimination round on the basis of total points in the preliminary rounds. The elimination rounds take place in two rooms, and the six highest-scoring teams proceed to the championship.
