BAY AREA SPEECH AND DEBATE ACADEMY
110 N Santa Cruz Ave, Suite C, Los Gatos, CA 94526
Bay Area Speech/Debate Academy conducts one of the strongest Speech and Debate programs in the Bay Area.
Our classes prepare students to compete in Middle and High School tournaments held around the Bay Area and nation. We teach more than one debate format so that students will be prepared for the different types of debate featured in the area. Although we encourage our students participate in tournaments, it is not necessary. We enter our students in National Junior Forensics League, which allows them to accumulate points to participate in High School Forensics League and latter on in College.
We have opened new sessions to prepare students to compete in Lincoln/Douglas format.
Resolved: The United States ought to extend to non-citizens accused of terrorism the same constitutional due process protections it grants to citizens.
Lincoln/Douglas is one on one debate with topics are based on logic, ethical values, and philosophy.
