We are the largest after-school speech and debate programs in the nation. Our size and strength gives us fantastic resources and access to the most amazing coaching talent in the nation.

Why Nova and Why 42?

OK, the name is a little different, but so are we. We challenge the status quo of education and our name (and number) keep us focused on the answer. We like being different; different is good.
