The Bergen County Debate Club is an educational program serving North Jersey residents, ages 10 and up, focused exclusively on the development of critical thinking, persuasive argumentation and public speaking skills for young students.
We are a team of highly qualified and experienced instructors, collectively achieving 53 TOC Bids, numerous NSDA, NCFL, NDCA Nationals Qualifications, and several APDA Championships on the National Circuit, both as competitors and coaches.
We aim to enrich the social, intellectual and academic lives of our students through debate. We believe that, under our expert guidance, with our proven curriculum and personal approach, BCDC's scholars are able to achieve outstanding results in debate while acquiring life skills and leadership qualities that are vital to success in today's ever more competitive educational and career environment.
Among the thousands of successful entrepreneurs, global leaders, business executives that have all greatly benefited from their mastery of discourse, John Sexton, the President of NYU (New York University) says it the best in just a few lines, "Those 4 years in debate were the educational foundation of everything I did. And I don't mean that in some simple form...I'm saying the finest education I got from any of the institutions I attended, the foundation of my mind that I got during those 4 years of competitive policy debate." However, do not just take his word for it, come find out for yourself at one of the Bergen County Debate Club's regularly scheduled classes or specialty workshops. Help us create the foundation we need to secure a brighter future. For more information about who we are and what we do, please feel free to contact us.
