The Academy for Public Speaking offers fun, interactive courses, camps, and coaching sessions to empower children to become confident, effective communicators and leaders.
Your child will learn the value of not being afraid to express his or her ideas while developing confidence, leadership experience, and public speaking skills. These essential communication skills will support your child in doing well in school and achieving his or her goals in life.
During our free introduction to public speaking class, your child will learn why public speaking skills are important, how common the fear of public speaking is, and how he or she can quickly overcome the fear of public speaking.
Your child will also have the opportunity to meet some Academy for Public Speaking graduates who will present speeches and share about their experiences. The graduates will explain how they initially felt about public speaking, what they like about the Academy for Public Speaking, and how the skills they have acquired have helped them in school and life.
The Academy for Public Speaking offers three levels of courses for students from 3rd-12th grade – level one, advanced, and masters public speaking courses, specialty courses such as debate and speech contests, after school enrichment courses, Saturday classes, and summer camp.
During the level one public speaking course, your child will gain confidence while learning how to write and deliver speeches, give effective peer evaluations, and reply to impromptu questions. Speech projects include introduction, inspirational, and persuasive speeches.
During summer camp, students also participate in fun, interactive communication based games and activities to develop teamwork and leadership skills. We offer public speaking, camp, advanced public speaking camp, debate camp, and a speech contests camp.
Our public speaking camps are for students who will enter 3rd-7th grade in the fall. The public speaking camps will begin in July. For a list of dates and times, please use this link.
