Mixed Middle and High School Group

No one is too shy to benefit from the skills developed in speech and debate. All levels welcome.

Led by experienced public school speech and debate coach and former Teacher of the Year, his program allows homeschool middle and high school students to learn the fundamentals of debate and public speaking formats, focusing on logic, research, philosophy, form and technique. Students attend weekly classes/practice meetings and become familiar with and have the opportunity to participate in competitions in and around the Houston area against students from well-established public and private school speech and debate programs.

NEW for 2022-23: our students will participate in the YMCA youth government program as well as local speech and debate programs.

Student curriculum aligned with the National Speech and Debate Association and Texas Forensic Association
