“Fremont Debate Academy has helped us become the advanced and well-rounded debaters we are today. We attribute our success to our roots in FDA, because it is what introduced us to argumentative discourse and cemented our foundations in debate. It was very formative in our journeys as debaters and speakers, and we are truly grateful for all the doors it opened for us. FDA helped us, along with the majority of our peers, learn essential skills such as networking, public speaking, researching, organization, and argumentation. We’re also glad that the program gave us the opportunity to give back to the community via volunteering at future sessions, local tournaments, and also creating new lesson plans or curriculums. We were fortunate to be a part of FDA, and highly recommend the program to every individual who wants to hone their skills or learn the basics of middle-school debate.”

"Fremont Debate Academy's instructors not only are highly accomplished in the Debate space, but also understand younger students from their perspective, which all leads to a much more effective teaching style. The mentorship and guidance that the instructors provided to my son allowed him to be successful in Horner Debate and develop a deep passion for competitive debate."
