Alumni Results

THERE'S NO COMPARISON to the national debate forum – AND THAT’S WHY THESE STUDENTS DON’T JUST CHOOSE OUR CAMP ONCE IN THEIR CAREERS, BUT KEEP COMING BACK. THE #CAMPTHATWINS IS MORE THAN JUST A MOTTO AT SUMMIT DEBATE.  

At Summit Debate, we want you to know that our product is something that gets results.  Beside every name you will also find the year that the students attended our institute.  We do this to show you that not only do the results come for the students after camp, but they continue throughout the season.  Our results have been proven to motivate our students for an amazing return ratio. 

When you #ReachForTheSummit with us in the Summer, Success Follows You All Year Long

If you find a mistake on our list, please message us on Facebook (@summitdebate) or email us at info@summitdebate.com and we will fix within 24 hours.
