Our Classes

At DSDC, all of our classes challenge each individual to expand their knowledge of the world and break out of the “one size fits all” education that high school encapsulates around students.


Beginner Students

Grades 4 to 7

Sunday 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm
Monday 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm
Wednesday 5:00 pm- 7:00 pm
Saturday 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Our morning Sunday class is an excellent choice for younger scholars eager to expand their public speaking and debate skills. The class’s primary focus is on the fundamentals and formats of debate, as well as an effective execution of speeches. We use these skills to grow the confidence of students. Often, our students come with brilliant ideas, but are unsure of how to best execute them. Every child, even the introverted and shy, can benefit from this class.


Emerging Students

Grades 4 to 6

Sunday 4:30 pm – 6:30pm

Our last Sunday class is an excellent choice for younger scholars eager to expand their public speaking and debate skills. The class’s primary focus is on the fundamentals and formats of debate, as well as an effective execution of speeches. We use these skills to grow the confidence of students. Often, our students come with brilliant ideas, but are unsure of how to best execute them. Every child, even the introverted and shy, can benefit from this class.

Grades 6 to 9

Friday 5:00 pm – 7:00pm

Our Saturday class is a perfect fit for students currently in or about to enter their first year of high school. This class cultivates basic knowledge of essential debate skills while accelerating academic growth as a whole. This class focuses on integrating challenging topics, such as philosophy, economics, as well as social systems and infrastructure. High school students will have unique opportunities to compete in tournaments, volunteer, and expand their breadth of knowledge as they prepare for university and beyond.


Experienced Students

Grades 6 to 9

Sunday 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Our other Sunday class is perfect for students who are more comfortable with public speaking and have familiarized themselves with the world of debate. This class is more rigorous for our students, as it pushes them to question what they already know to excel in the complex and nuance distinctions that debate demands. From a focus in advanced topics to consistent and challenging mock debates, the competitive nature this class cultivates is sure to support our talented debaters who are ready to shine at tournaments.


Other Classes

World Scholar’s Cup

Grades 5 to 8 – Coming Soon

Every child can benefit from the immersive experience of the World Scholar’s Cup. Excelling in this prestigious competition requires rigorous preparation and training. It all starts with 6 distinct subjects in a regional competition, but sooner or later, students find themselves in a Global Round. They could travel anywhere from Beijing to Amsterdam to Sydney. Our most exceptional scholars win a trip to the Tournament of Champions at Yale University! Regardless of where the Cup takes you, it is a journey everyone loves. This class fully prepares students for this competition, and we love seeing students move beyond their expectations for themselves!

Don’t hesitate, debate
