Forensics at Patrick Henry College


Debate takes students' communication abilities beyond paper-writing and exams.

Competitive debate motivates students to exceed the bare minimum of knowledge, and builds the ability to articulate and defend a position against repeated attacks. As a result, many debaters seek beyond knowledge, to application.

Thus, debate educates alongside the classroom, engaging students in a deeper understanding of taught concepts.

Every class, from logic and rhetoric to constitutional law, literature, and foreign policy, finds a use in our team’s speeches and arguments.

Because of its rigorous and effective approach to education, forensics at PHC are not extra-curricular but co-curricular, a fully-recognized and vital element of PHC Academics.
