Summer Public Speaking & Debate Camps
Our Summer Debate Camp would help in building your students communication and critical thinking skills, thus leading to better academic performance at school. Many of our former campers have gone on to participate in national debate tournaments and enroll in prestigious universities (UCLA, Stanford, USC, and Harvard to name a few). We also have scholarship and financial aid opportunities for students to take advantage of.

Resources for DACA Students & Families

Dallas ISD has launched a new webpage with resources for students and families who are impacted by recent developments regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The Dallas ISD school board voted unanimously to declare Dallas ISD a welcoming and protective district vowing to do everything it can to provide a welcoming and protective environment in all schools for all students. Learn more about these resources and feel free to share the link with anyone you may know who could benefit.
