Speech & Debate (grades 6-8)

Ransom Campus
The Middle School Summer Speech and Debate Program aims to equip students with the tools to communicate effectively, introducing them to the foundations of argument, helping them identify and overcome barriers to communication, and fostering teamwork skills. This program also opens students to events happening in their neighborhoods and around the world, reducing stage fright and the fear of embarrassment, thereby preparing them for confident and informed participation in the real world.
Founded in 1903, Ransom Everglades School is a coeducational, college preparatory day school for grades 6 - 12 located on two campuses in Coconut Grove, Florida. Ransom Everglades School produces graduates who "believe that they are in the world not so much for what they can get out of it as for what they can put into it." The school provides rigorous college preparation that promotes the student's sense of identity, community, personal integrity and values for a productive and satisfying life, and prepares the student to lead and to contribute to society.
