About Legacy

Stoa's Mission: To train homeschool students to speak boldly to change the world for Christ.

Legacy Speech Club exists for for the purpose of teaching students to leave a legacy by becoming effective communicators for Christ. Based in the San Jose, CA area, our parent-run club fosters a family environment of fun and encouragement while requiring a high commitment.  Our hope is that the entire family grows by being a part of Legacy.  Please carefully read and prayerfully consider our guidelines prior to club application.

Legacy belongs to Stoa, a national homeschool speech and debate league.  Due to Stoa eligibility requirements, students who join Legacy must be homeschooling, not part of a charter school or public school independent study program, and not enrolled in a full-time college-level degree program.

Would you like to get a taste of what a speech tournament is like?  We will have a tournament in Sunnyvale on Saturday, January 13, 2024.  We’d love for parents and community members (age 18+) to come volunteer as judges.  Students can come listen to speeches and get inspired by hearing other students speak!  Use this Google Form to let us know you’re interested, and we’ll email you a sign-up form closer to January.  This will be a great way to get a taste of what Stoa is like.


Just as a chair is supported by four legs that sustain the weight, Legacy Speech Club has four core values or L.E.G.S. that undergird all that we are and do. It is what we expect from each and every club parent and student.
