Our Students Today

Academic debate helps students sharpen critical thinking, public speaking, writing, and research skills. Well designed, structured debate education is arguably the most powerful investment families can make in their children’s intellectual growth. Our students are amongst the brightest of the bright and their time with us helps them gain valuable skills that they leverage in the professional world to become movers and shakers in a broad range of professions.

"DebateDrills has given my son Max an extraordinary community of mentors and friends who share his intellectual curiosity and passion for debate. They have helped him develop critical and analytical thinking skills that are not part of the standard high school curriculum but are essential for success in college, graduate school, and almost any demanding profession or career. My son's high school years are immeasurably richer and more rewarding because he has been lucky enough to be part of DebateDrills."

"I received my B.S. in EECS from UC Berkeley and am a software engineer at Playstation. My time at DebateDrills plays a huge role in my professional success. DebateDrills no doubt contributed to my admission to UC Berkeley and the coaches taught me teamwork, public speaking, critical thinking, and organizational skills that help me every day."
