Ivy League Coaching
Our students learn from topic experts, hand picked from Columbia University, Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University.
The Early Scholars Difference
Early Scholars has been named the top debate team in the prestigious NYC Tournament League for the past three years. Our proven methods take 3rd through 8th grade students through the process of becoming experts in debate.
Over 10 week courses, our students learn from topic experts, hand picked from Columbia University, Harvard University, University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University.
Not only do they gain knowledge in US Government and American politics, domestic current events, and post-WWII US history, they apply this information in weekly, in-class mock debates.
Using these skills, our debate scholars prepare for the NYC Urban Debate League Elementary Tournaments and the Middle School City & State Championships.
