Being able to effectively communicate one’s ideas using persuasive logic is a skill we cultivate at The Wilson Academy. One of the ways we do this is through our Middle and High School Debate teams. The Wilson Academy is part of the Atlanta Urban Debate League, and our students compete against public and private schools of all sizes and demographics! Our 2017 middle school team of Erin Simms and Khelsei (Kai) Wilson (pictured below) finished UNDEFEATED in the State Championship, earning a second place finish in the state overall (based on points). Khelsei Wilson earned the distinction of the state’s 1st place speaker.
