My daughter was shy, before attending Cogito Debate. After taking some of the classes, she is now carrying herself in a more outspoken and confident way. We believe the training she received at Cogito Debate gave her more confidence to speak up

Fiona raved about her Cogito Debate summer camp instructors and the staff. In fact, she loved the summer camp so much that upon completion she enrolled in the fall session. While Fiona is truly enjoying debate, if you ask her, she'll tell you she loves everything about Cogito Debate -- from the students, to the classes, to the new skills that she learning and applying to other aspects of her life.

My son Samuel has been a Cogito Debate student for just over a year. The classes truly helped him in a number of areas. His overall communication skills -- both speaking and writing -- have improved; he has shown more confidence in his public speaking; and he's now considered a leader among his peers. In addition,other parents have commented that he has matured. Overall, attending Cogito Debate has been a great experience for Samuel!

We have been to many debate/speech places. Cogito is unique that it was founded for education rather than profits. Cogito's dedicated staff and quality training not only deliver critical thinking and academic skills to our children, but also provide a safe environment to grow their confidence and team building skills.
