Program Highlights

Low student-to-teacher ratio.

We believe the best instruction comes from individual instruction. Our coaches work with each student to ensure improvement. We pay attention to every individual student's growth and do not leave anyone unattended.

Specialized coaches.

Lincoln-Douglas and Public Forum debaters have separate coaches who are specialized in that event.

A friendly practice environment.

Students improve their skills by debating with other highly motivated students under the guidance of our coaches. This allows for quicker learning.

Proven results.

We have students who are champions at the local, state, and even national level. This proves our method is effective and efficient.


Local championships won by our students in the last two years.


State championship in 2019.


National championship in 2019.

Competition Opportunities.

Team debate students and select Debate I students have the opportunity to compete in middle school debate tournaments. This is an excellent opportunity for improvement.
