The Logos Forensic Association is a competitive private Christian high school speech and debate league committed to building character and a biblical worldview in high school students.
The Logos Forensic Association speech and debate league is tailored exclusively for private Christian high schools. Therefore, only private Christian high schools or private Christian schools with a high school are eligible to become members of the LFA. Students who are freshmen through seniors (grades 9-12) are eligible to compete.
School and Student Membership
Both school and student LFA memberships are required for participation in the LFA or any LFA sanctioned event. School and student memberships are valid for the entire speech and debate league year which begins in September and ends in May. Speech and debate tournaments normally occur from October through April of every year.
Registration for membership in the LFA requires that each school and participating student submit a complete membership application and appropriate membership dues. Once a school and their students' membership registrations are complete, the school's staff and students will be eligible to participate in LFA learning opportunities, tournaments, and other LFA offered events and programs.
Students are ineligible to compete until both their school's and their student membership registrations have been completed.

The LFA currently operates in the state of California, but our goal is to bring the benefits of speech and debate to private Christian schools throughout the country. The LFA is excited to announce that it is looking to expand into the nearby states of Arizona, Colorado and Nevada for the 2020/2021 season and beyond.
If your school is not located in California but you would like to see a speech and debate program at your school, we can help bring the activity to your area. Simply contact us by phone or email.
