Our program fosters intellectual growth, communication and leadership skills in and encouraging, yet competitive, scholastic competition.  Students participate in over 30 local, regional, state and national competitions, with Notre Dame students receiving accolades across all levels of competition. 

We have sent qualifying students to the Catholic Nationals, NSDA Nationals, and the Tournament of Champions for Extemporaneous Speaking and Parliamentary Debate.   

Notre Dame competes in the Coast Forensics League, the California High School Speech Association, the National Catholic Forensics League, and the National Speech and Debate Association.  Follow us on Twitter for the latest news and check the Notre Dame calendar for upcoming events!
