Membership Guidelines -

Aspire requires parents to be part of the education process. Parent involvement in learning along with their student, listening to speeches and debate rounds, and accountability for the student is crucial to getting the most out of this experience. This is not a drop-off club. Leaders will teach, support, and give feedback, but the students' effort and parent involvement will determine the students' success and provide the opportunity for Aspire to facilitate tournament experiences.

Why Speech and Debate?

Aspire can be applied as a speech or debate credit on your transcript, but can also be so much more! We focus on Christian character, good sportsmanship, research skills, and a sense of team.

Student Code of Conduct

We agree to and expect -
I. Mission
The mission of Aspire Speech and Debate and Stoa is to train homeschooled students to speak boldly and change the world for Christ. To accomplish this, we train students to uphold a biblical worldview through their conduct as well as their speech. As a Christ-centered organization dedicated to a biblical worldview, Aspire requires each student to affirm and abide by this Code of Conduct. A student’s commitment to and ongoing compliance with this Code of Conduct, as amended from time to time, is an essential condition of his or her membership and participation in Aspire Speech and Debate Club and Stoa.

II. Student Character, Speech, and Conduct
At all times, in both public and private, a student must exhibit Christ-like character, following His example in word and deed. While we do not expect a student to be perfect, we do expect that he or she will strive always to be like Christ in a spirit of truth and humility. As the Apostle Paul said, “Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already arrived at my goal, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me” (Phil. 3:12).
