Speech&Debate Academy aims to help educate students on the principles, processes, and activities within speech and debate for free. We are dedicated to promoting the spread of speech and debate within different schools and communities. Whether as a mechanism to learn communication or to achieve competition-readiness, Speech&Debate Academy hopes to broaden access to this activity.
Speech&Debate Academy is composed of both synchronous and asynchronous components, all for free. Synchronous courses include free live Zoom sessions to learn a particular speech or debate event, either in a group or individually.

Our asynchronous courses are self-guided online programs designed to teach participants several events, including parliamentary debate, limited and pre-prepared speech events, and more.
The Speech&Debate Academy nonprofit was founded by high school students, for high school students in 2022. The world of competitive speech and debate is often highly costly, with good training often inaccessible. Our goal is to give more people access to the world of speech and debate by having those experienced in the activity teach new students at no cost.
