St Louis Speech and Debate

For fifteen years, St. Louis Speech and Debate has equipped young people to be effective
communicators. As a local club affiliated with Stoa, a national Christian homeschool forensics

national tournaments.

St. Louis Speech and Debate equips students to passionately communicate Christ and His precepts.
