DEBATE COURSES

Point Avenue Debate Programs aim to equip future global leaders with 21st-century skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, and creativity. Debate is an academic sport that encourages students to question the status quo, challenge the norm, and speak up for what they believe in. Through debate, students practice and hone their capacity in the four core areas of English learning: reading, writing, listening, and speaking.

Students will be introduced to the foundations of debate in the Beginner Course (Elementary, MSHS) with a focus on public speaking in Elementary and 3:3 parliamentary debate format in Middle School and High School. In the Intermediate Course (Elementary, MSHS), students will practice and enhance their debating skills through topic exploration, speech drills, and debate practices in a competitive environment. In the All-Stars Course (HS), students will focus on preparing for debate tournaments through motion analysis, personalized speech and debate drills, and tournament debriefs.
