Join the Speech School!

Build your child’s confidence and public speaking skills in a fun, creative environment.

About

Our mission is to empower young leaders by helping them build skills to communicate, articulate, and assert their voices. For the past 3 years The Speech School has been providing students from around the world premiere public speaking training virtually. Our coaches work hard to create a personalized experience for each student.

We begin each term by identifying each child’s strengths and areas that they can improve. Through games, activities, speeches, and competitions each student will have plenty of opportunities to improve, perform, and succeed.

At the end of each term there will be a final presentation where coaches will provide an individualized progress report so that students can see their improvement firsthand.

Frequently Asked Questions

We will accept students two weeks after classes start. After that point students can register for the following term or register for private classes.

Yes we do! We have a select amount of private classes available; if you’re interested in private classes please email admin@speechschool.co for more information. Please note private classes start at $75.00 per session.

It’s important for students to attend every class so that they do not fall behind and so that they get the most out of The Speech School.

If a student cannot attend a class we ask that you let us know at least two hours in advance. They will then have a make up class at the end of the term. Please note we can only reschedule one class per term.

We are happy to have parents watch each class, however, some students rehearse better without a large audience so we encourage parents to attend the performances. We will have performances every four weeks, and a final performance at the end of the term.

Parents will also receive status reports at the end of every class so that they are aware of their child’s progress throughout the term.

 

To ensure students are getting the most of The Speech School we expect them to be prepared each week to perform, participate in discussion, and listen to their team members. Students will receive homework each week from their coach, which will help improve their communication and public speaking skills.

We also expect each student to be on time, have their Speech School materials with them, and their cameras on.

In order to have the best experience possible, we strongly recommend that students find a quiet space to attend the class. The area should be quiet with a strong internet connection where students feel comfortable performing and speaking out loud.

We are currently looking at the possibility of offering in-person courses in the future. Right now all speech courses are 100% online.

Students should have their Speech School Workbook, pen/pencil, paper, a copy of the book the team is reading and be in a quiet area with a strong internet connection.

All of our coaches are University educated in a relevant field (i.e. Communications, Theatre, Education, English, or Speech Pathology). Our coaches also have experiences teaching, performing, and/or public speaking.
