Arma Dei Academy participates in the Rocky Mountain Classical Christian Schools Speech Meet each year in order to provide a platform for students to develop rhetoric skills from an early age. This opportunity makes use of classical educational pedagogy where students are challenged to develop the skills of memorization, public speaking, and social grace. We hold classroom speech meets for first through eighth grades. Students may choose from a variety of categories – Bible memory, poetry, dramatic interpretation, or patriotic recitation.

The top three students (top four for classes with two sections) will compete in the regional competition with Augustine Classical Academy and Winter Park Christian School here at Arma Dei on March 14.
Thank you to Mrs. Hein for coordinating the Speech Meet!
