Thank you for your interest in the James Logan Forensics Summer Academy. It is wonderful that you are exploring this opportunity to become part of our critically acclaimed program and I would like to take this opportunity to say welcome! I cannot emphasize enough the need for your child to be a part of this academy, in anticipation of competition next year, as the foundation for their competitive success will be laid during the Summer Academy.
Students in the program will have the opportunity to participate in all three branches of Forensics. These branches include platform public speaking, interpretation (competitive acting), and debate. The skills that competition in all of these branches imbue on students have become increasingly vital for their future success in college and beyond…in fact they are life skills. Your child’s attendance at the Summer Academy is a vital step forward toward their realizing this success.
Academy Design + Schedule
The Summer Academy will be held from Wednesday, July 5th 2017 - Saturday, July 29th, 2017. We will be continuing this year with our academy model of covering preparation for all of the three branches of Forensics during the month of July. Our goal is to ensure that every competitor coming out of the camp has been exposed to everything that Forensics has to offer and has had adequate time to select their primary areas of emphasis before the demands of the school year begin.
The first half of the Summer Academy will be dedicated exclusively to debate, including evaluation and event placement. The second half of the Summer Academy will be dedicated to speech events. We have designed the camp this way to ensure that every student is exposed to every aspect of this activity.
The schedule for the Summer Academy will be:
Monday - Friday 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Saturday 9 a.m. - 1 p.m.
NHUSD Students = $850.00
Out of District Students = $1,600.00
* Compare these costs to other speech and debate camps around the area (Stanford, Berkeley, etc) to see the tremendous savings!
Stanford Individual Events - 1 week = $1,650.00
Cal National Debate Institute - 3 week = $1,700.00
