Ivy Bridge Academy After-School Public Speaking & Debate Program at Bates Academy (Detroit, Michigan)
Ivy Bridge Academy After-School Public Speaking & Debate Program provides an interactive learning environment that is both fun and educational.
Our goal is to introduce elementary school students to the art and science of persuasive fact based debate to foster confidence and independent thinking.
Ivy Bridge Academy works in partnership with Bates Academy, who is dedicated to enriching the lives of their students to be thinkers, speakers and leaders.
Some of the benefits of IBA After-School Public Speaking & Debate Program at Bates Academy:
- Competitive Debate Experience

- Persuasive Speaking & Oration
- Ethics and Leadership
- Interview Skills
- Reading and Writing
- Research and Information Processing

*NEW* PUBLIC SPEAKING ADDED TO PROGRAM!: We have added Public Speaking to our Debate Program. Public speaking helps build the foundation of logic, confidence, and self-esteem. Students will learn communication skills that persuade and inspire! By laying the foundation for public speaking early, students will overcome the fear of speaking in public that even some adults experience.
