Mission: Debate teaches students to learn and have fun while competing in public speaking events. Debaters learn to research, organizational, and argumentative skills. We compete in speech and debate events including Policy Debate, Lincoln-Douglas Debate, Public Forum Debate, Congressional Debate, and many more individual speech events. A successful debater graduates from our program better prepared for college, job interviews, and life.
A Tradition of Excellence:
Gonzaga Prep is the only school in the State of Washington to have won three National Championships in Speech and Debate. No other Washington School has won more than one. Gonzaga Prep has also won multiple state and GSL titles.
