Comprehensive communication classes.

We offer private lessons and group classes to K-12 students. We've divided up our offerings into seven major categories: foundational courses for novices, speech/student congress, debate, mock trial/model united nations, college enrichment courses, custom courses, and week-long summer intensives.

We pride ourselves on curriculum design. Every course is developed by industry-leading instructional coaches, crafted to help students from all skill levels succeed. Whether you're a rookie or a rock star, we've got a class for you.

You can take these courses online, at Tustin, San Marino, and Thousand Oaks, or at one of our partner locations (which currently include Eastvale, Rancho Cucamonga, Palos Verdes, Cupertino, and Dallas)

Competitive extracurricular excellence.

Our coaches have mentored national champions in speech, debate, mock trial, ethics bowl at the elementary, middle, high school, college, and professional levels.

In the 2021-2022 season, we had more champions, runners-up, and finalists at tournaments like the middle school Tournament of Champions and California State Championship than the next two best teams combined.

In 2022-2023, we again had more champions at the middle school Tournament of Champions than any other program in the world. We were also the only academy in the country to win a team sweepstakes award at the National Individual Event Tournament of Champions and the Mock Trial Tournament of Champions. Then, we were the season-long sweepstakes winner--the best overall team, considering elementary, middle, and high school--at the National Online Forensics League.

High school and college admissions counseling.

We help students plan a path for their passions. If you want students to be better prepared for a selective high school or find their right college fit, we're here for you. Our model empowers our students to excel in competitions, engage in rigorous research, chart a successful academic course, become community leaders, and showcase their authentic selves.

Our college counseling mentees have been admitted to some of the most selective universities in the world (including Stanford, Harvard, Yale, Duke, Vanderbilt, Northwestern, Cornell, UCLA, and UC Berkeley) and their perfect-fit liberal arts colleges (such as Amherst, Claremont McKenna, Colby, Grinnell, Hamilton, and Wesleyan).

Whether you're a middle schooler, high schooler, or prospective transfer student, we want to you to develop the resume and work habits to thrive.
