Speech and Debate
Olive Speech and Debate continues its tradition of excellence by training young minds in its elementary school classes, developing their competitive skills on its reigning national champion middle school team, and building partnerships with the local high schools to serve them their entire competitive career.
What do we think when we say “computers?” Are computers just used for testing and playing games? We believe computers empower students to create, learn, and engage with powerful ideas. Computer science is a dynamic medium for learning not only tech skills, but critical thinking skills essential for students in the digital age. These critical skills will encourage and drive students to become proactive learners.
Rich writing requires several elements in dynamic tension: perspective, organization, audience, presentation, and clarity. But above all, writing requires that children desire to write! Thus, the workshop captures young ones’ motivations and kindles a love for writing.
Model United Nations
Olive Model United Nations is an academic simulation of the United Nations program which provides students opportunities to actively learn world cultures and debate issues of international importance.
Leadership is a set of core skills and practices that can be cultivated with guidance, coaching, counseling, and hands-on experience. Participants will be involved in a rich range of activities that will help them identify and hone their natural leadership skills.
