Our Debate Teams
About Potomac Debate Academy
Potomac Debate Academy is a competitive travel debate team for students in grades 4 through 12. Students on Potomac Debate Academy teams generally meet once a week to prepare for regional and national debate events. Our Academy is a member of the National Speech & Debate Association (NSDA) and National Circuit (US HS).
One of the most successful debate programs in the country, our debate teams regularly take home multiple team and individual awards across all levels, e.g. Novice, JV, and Varsity. During the past season, alone, we did not leave a single competition without taking home top awards, including Harvard University, Georgetown University, and UPenn University invitationals, as well as qualifying Nationals students who will compete at the 2020 Club Internationals in New Jersey, 2020 Tournament of Champions in Kentucky, and 2020 NSDA Nationals Championships in New Mexico.
