Debate Institute to Host Online Programming for Summer 2020

May 6, 2020

7-Week Policy Debate Online Program: June 26 – August 8, 2020 for $2,000

4-Week Policy Debate Online Program: June 26 – July 25, 2020 for $1,400

1-Week Policy Debate Online Program: We are unable to host a 1-Week program this summer.

In light of the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19, Northwestern’s National High School Institute has elected to embrace an online instructional model for our Debate Institute in summer 2020. While we will deeply miss the opportunity to welcome students from across the nation to Evanston this summer, we see this year’s institute as an opportunity to embrace teaching and learning models, make our institute more accessible by lowering our tuition, and deliver just as challenging and enjoyable an institute online as we would in Northwestern’s classrooms.
