Middle school can be a tough time for children as they navigate the ups and downs of their age, transition into middle school and deal with other changes.

Empowering youth with self-confidence and the power of a unique and strong voice can often be the key to a wonderful and life-changing middle school time period.

With the unique Nova emphasis on fun, self-empowerment, academic skill-building and experiential learning, the middle school program at Nova 42 remains a powerhouse, much-admired and never-duplicated. The speech and debate classes expose students to a broad training in speech events and debate events. Students actively engage and participate in public speaking drills, exercises, speeches, improvisational activities, SPAR, Congressional debate, Lincoln Douglas debate and Public Forum debate.  With our unique access to NEXIS research databases, Nova offers students research training, critical thinking, case-building and other crucial academic skills.  With over 32-35 tournaments (2 to3 in the summer) available for students, Nova also provides an experiential training ground unparalleled in the speech and debate community.  Students develop self-confidence and focus while developing effective communication skills.
