[National Circuit Classes]

These courses require students to complete an interview and a comprehensive code of conduct. These are not for casual speakers. All participants should enter with the goal of competing on the national level. The classes are longer. The workload is more significant. Unlike our normal courses, which allow students to sign up one semester at a time, the Nationals Team meets year-round.

Debate Nationals Team (Lincoln-Douglas, Policy, Public Forum): $3400 per year

Speech/Congress Nationals Team: $5000 per year

 

[Economics Classes]

Our goal is to give students the intellectual and decision-making tools that they need to become independent financially stable people by the time they finish high school. Students will learn the basics of personal financial literacy, the elements of building a successful business, finance and investment through the eyes of an investor, and economic theory and history.

It all begins in elementary school with personal financial literacy and public speaking for business. In middle school, students transition to learning economics and practical business skills. Finally, at the high school level, students prep for AP Macro and Microeconomics while learning economic theory and history. Only our high school AP Economics course, which prepares students for both the AP test and economics competitions, requires a year-long commitment.

AP Economics: $2460 per year
