Join Our Nationally Recognized
Debate Program


Join us for our Summer 2024 debate program!

For students new to debate, we have our Novice 1 classes. During class, students will learn the Public Forum debate format, how to write and research arguments, practice impromptu speaking, and gain experience in mock debates. All instruction will be taught through the lens of a debate topic of global significance.

For our returning students in Novice 2, JV, or Varsity levels, we offer either 8-week options or week-long intensive workshops where students will focus on improving skills for the national competitive circuit in the fall.
