Our club serves homeschool and private Christian school students ages 12 through 18 in Hampton Roads, Virginia. We train students to think with logic, write with style, and speak with power. We believe that words fitly spoken can launch careers, overturn unjust laws, and draw wayward hearts to Jesus. Why join a club when you can study speech and debate at home? Click here to find out.
