The Milton Academy Middle School Speech Team is more than a group of dedicated, enthusiastic, supportive students. The Speech Team is an opportunity to step out of a known comfort zone and into a world filled with fantastic, extravagant and moving pieces, characters, and performers. Beyond the year’s prose, declamations, and poetry, popping in and out of characters, choosing between hilarious and deeply moving pieces, the Milton Academy Middle School Speech Team provides students with the confidence and the basic speaking skills needed to become excellent, professional speakers.
If you are curious about what the Middle School Speech does? Come watch a speech round right here on our campus, this Sunday, May 1, when our Middle School team will host its Foley Fiesta. This largest of the regular season middle school tournaments began in 1985, and is named for former Middle School principal, Edward Foley, under whose tenure the tournament began.
Speech competition will begin around 9:30 a.m. and will end late in the afternoon. So, if you’re near campus, stop by to see what makes Speech Team such a fun and challenging activity.
