Speech and Debate



Through speech classes and our competitive Speech and Debate Team, 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, such as those held at Harvard, Wake Forest, and Emory Universities, prepare students for the highest level of competition. Brentwood Academy has a strong history of excellence in a variety of events such as Dramatic Interpretation, Humorous Interpretation, Duo Interpretation, Original Oratory, Impromptu Speaking, Prose, and Poetry.

1 PETER 4:10 (NIV; BA THEME VERSE 2001-2002)

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.



Our intentional class sizes vary by grade and discipline, all led by faculty who are accomplished in their fields of study, creating an ideal environment for academic growth and success.
