Debaters Host Workshop for MDCPS

The Columbus Debate Society started off its year by hosting a workshop for students of Miami-Dade County Public Schools.

One hundred and twenty students from a dozen middle and high schools got a chance to participate in ten different debate workshop sessions, staffed by our very own varsity debaters. The workshop helps kick-off this year's Miami-Dade After School Tournament league, which Columbus helped co-found along with G. Holmes Braddock High School four years ago. Since its inception, the league has held tournaments providing low cost opportunities for students to learn advocacy and communication skills in competitive debate tournaments.

Christopher Columbus High School is a private, Roman Catholic, college-preparatory high school, conducted by the Marist Brothers of the Schools. We aim to make Jesus Christ known and loved, as we prepare young men for higher education and for their continuous challenge of harmonizing faith, culture and life. We foster a family spirit among all who are committed to the success of the school and promote opportunities to work together as a community of learners. 

Columbus is fully accredited by Cognia and is a member of the Marist Association of Secondary schools, the National Catholic Education Association and the Independent Schools of South Florida.
