The Capital Area Quiz Bowl League, or just the Capital Area League, is a high school pyramidal quiz bowl league that competes in the greater Harrisburg, PA area, including Cumberland, Dauphin, Perry, and York Counties. The league has been in existence as late as 2008, but may have played non-NAQT questions before.


The Capital Area League's members compete by playing one round matches against each other. Unlike the Lancaster-Lebanon League and York-Adams Quiz Bowl League, stats have traditionally not been kept for matches. The league uses two NAQT A set questions for its regular season and postseason.

Currently, the league is hosted by Cumberland Valley High School, and has been previously hosted by Camp Hill. Though the league produces one winner, it does not decide who advances to the Pennsylvania State Academic Competition, as the Capital Area Intermediate Unit runs a separate qualifier tournament.


Historically, member composition has varied, with schools dropping and rejoining in later years. Camp Hill, for instance, no longer participates, despite previously hosting the league. The league briefly included Adams County as part of its member Counties, but has since returned to the original Capital Area.
