Why Georgetown?

Our Philosophy

Georgetown’s commitment to pedagogy and proximity to the intellectual and cultural resources of the capital created a unique environment that shaped a generation of policy debaters. In 2009, we relaunched our summer program with an innovative curriculum that has been refined by the nation’s very best debate coaches at the high school and collegiate level.

As coaches and debaters of one of the nation’s most successful debate programs, we are pleased to be able to have the opportunity to share our experience, philosophy and our campus with high school debaters. Our staff is committed to ensuring a quality experience for all attendees.

Great Location

For debaters, there may be no better place to be than in Washington, D.C. Our proximity to the Capitol gives our students access to opportunities no other debate camps can provide. Students take a supervised field trip to sight-see some of the city’s many attractions. We bring in experts on the national high school resolution to help guide your research and argumentative strategy for the upcoming season.

The Georgetown campus and neighborhood, in addition to their beautiful and historic nature, are very safe areas. All public areas of campus are well-lit and routinely patrolled by campus police. The dormitories are staffed 24/7 with security personnel and all visitors must check in with the front desk. All exterior doors to the dorm are locked at all times and students must swipe their Georgetown id card to access the building. The safety and security of our students is our top priority.
