Education done differently.

In the coming age, students will need to do more than memorize information and pass tests. They’ll have to think critically and creatively. They’ll need to develop powerful social skills.

Speech and debate offers students a 21st century skillset, and Ace Peak exists to teach it. Since 2016, we have been a primary resource for thousands of competitors, parents, and coaches in the forensics community.

In three years, Ace Peak students have won 24 national titles in competition, and even greater successes in life after high school.
