Some information about our classes:


Little Novas--It's never too early to be a confident speaker!  The focus of this class is to introduce public speaking and fundamentals of speech and presentation to our youngest stars.  Filled with fun improv games, storytelling and other hands-on drills, communication basics and more, this class builds the foundation of self-confidence and a joy of public speaking at an early age!

Elementary School--With the unique Nova emphasis on fun and experiential learning, the elementary school program lays the foundation to change young students lives forever and for the better.  Students develop self-confidence and focus while developing effective communication skills.  Through active speaking exercises and drills, students find their power and unique voices while learning technical mastery of speech events.  Students also develop critical thinking, argumentation and basic research and case-building skills by learning fundamentals of SPAR, Congressional debate, parliamentary debate, and Public Forum debate. The powerful ability to improvise and come up with communication on-the-spot is emphasized. Through a fun and active environment, students build the key communication skills they need to succeed in life. Tournament participation is voluntary but highly encouraged.

Middle school and high 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. 

Also, as students enter high school and start thinking about college and beyond, effective public speaking skills become a key advantage to stand out to colleges and prospective employers.  

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. 

Our teaching focuses on four key areas:  critical thinking, presentation, interpersonal skills and leadership. Along with our core areas, the speech and debate classes expose students to a broad training in speech events and debate events. Students actively engage and participate in unique public speaking drills, exercises, speeches, improvisational activities, SPAR, Congressional debate, Lincoln Douglas debate and Public Forum debate.  Many of our unique drills were created by our own instructors and are unavailable at other institutions.

With our unique access to research databases, Nova offers students research training, critical thinking, case-building and other crucial academic skills.  With over 32-35 tournaments (2 to 3 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. Through a fun and active environment, students build the key communication skills they need to succeed in life. Tournament participation is voluntary but highly encouraged. 

We offer speech and debate classes year-round and participate in over 30 tournaments a year for all age groups!
