Speech and Debate

Through speech classes and our competitive Speech and Debate team (formerly known as forensics) students develop the speaking and acting skills that allow them to become confident communicators in any arena. Students prepare, memorize, and present various types of dramatic material, competing locally and nationally against the finest high school speakers in the United States. Tournaments at Harvard, Wake Forest and Emory Universities prepare students for the highest level of competition. Traditionally, Brentwood Academy has excelled in a variety of events such as Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, Original Oratory, Impromptu Speaking, Prose, and Poetry.
