Welcome to an afterschool academy on a mission.

Honor Academy is a leading tutoring center and afterschool academy located in Cerritos, California. Honor Academy is proving self-focused after school tutoring programs and leadership programs, such as our renowned speech and debate programs.

Honor Academy opened a couple of decades ago with a mission to help students who wanted to learn to their full satisfaction. We were the first afterschool academy who started Singapore math to local students and help them build critical thinking skills. Honor Academy also has taught essay writing classes for students who wanted to improve their English writing skills. We are still on our mission!

However, our goal is not limited to helping students achieve better grades but to also give them opportunities to become leaders. Honor Academy is highly renowned for its great leadership programs, through which students will build real-life knowledge, self-confidence, public speaking skills, and interpersonal skills.

We have provided numerous kinds of speech and debate classes including Public Forum debate, Lincoln-Douglas debate, Parliamentary debate, SPAR debate, Impromptu speech, Informative speech, Persuasive speech, Oratory speech, and more. Now, students from 3rd grade to 12th grade are being helped by Honor Academy’s knowledgeable speech and debate coaches.

We have had students from Cerritos, Cypress, Artesia, Bellflower, Fullerton, Buena Park, Long Beach, Brea, Los Alamitos, and nearby cities, and they have performed exceptionally at various tournaments throughout the nation both as a Honor Academy team and their very own school team.

Whereas public schools and other afterschool academies provide classes of 10-35 students, our classes are small with maximum 4-8 students depending on subject yet affordable.

Tell me and I forget.

Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I learn.

About our renowned Speech and Debate Programs:

We have many different levels based on experience. Also, speech and debate has more than ten different events: categories, and we have different classes for different categories.
Speech and debate is not just a person giving a presentation on their choice of style. Like all the sport events, such as baseball or football, speech and debate events have rules to follow in order to compete at tournaments and achieve awards, and Honor Academy trains students based on National Speech and Debate Association’s regulations and event rules.

As early as 5th grade up to Highschool junior year, we take students to competitions throughout the school year between September and May. Honor Academy students are achieving much more awards from speech and debate tournaments each year than the other local academies.

We also consult with our students and parents on National Speech and Debate memberships, so that they gain benefits from the association, such as the prestigious Academic All-American Award. We closely manage our students.

We keep managing our students speech and debate activities closely, consult, and train them for California State Championships and the National Speech and Debate tournaments, and we have successful outcomes like no other educational organizations have. Many of our speech and debate students have made it into Harvard University, Ivy colleges, Stanford, and other prestigious colleges in the US.

Speech and Debate is also a life skill that changes children’s social life and requires years of training.
