Outside Vendor Classes 


We will not be offering BASA classes this fall, however, we have been made aware of available classes through our vendor network.  These classes are neither sponsored nor endorsed by the Fairfax County School Board, the Superintendent, Colvin Run Elementary School, or the Colvin Run PTO/BASA.  

To register directly with a vendor, please see the websites below.  We will continue to update this page as we get additional information from our outside vendors.  



Fairfax Collegiate


Since March, Fairfax Collegiate has provided online public speaking and debate courses and has taught more than 800 students in these classes. Now, we are creating debate teams at select schools which can go on to compete in tournaments against teams from other schools!
Debate Society (Grades 5-6):  A class to create and prepare a Colvin Run Debate Team will be held via Zoom on Monday afternoons from October 19 through December 7. There will be eight 90-minute classes from 4:00pm to 5:30pm.
Students will learn how to craft persuasive arguments and rebuttals, practicing these skills each week with a full-length debate in which each student has a role. Topics will be drawn from student interest and domestic and world issues. Each class will end with a detailed debrief from the instructor of both individual and team performance before a winner is declared. An individual progress report will be sent to families after each class indicating student growth and suggestions for the next class.
The cost of the class is $225, a 25% discount from the listed price on our website for these online debate courses. To register, you may follow this link.
