Welcome to the ROC website

The Rockwall Oratorical Club (ROC) is a Christian speech & debate club for home schooled students. Our mission is to equip students with public speaking skills and to encourage them to develop a heart that puts God first in all aspects of life.

Our core values include:

  • considering others before ourselves in the way we speak and act
  • establishing a standard of excellence in the work that we do
  • being gracious toward others. Philippians 2:3-7, 4:8; Colossians 3:12-14, 3:23-24, 4:6

We support the mission of the National Christian Forensics and Communication Association

ROC actively seeks opportunities for our students to use their speaking
skills to impact their community. We believe our young people have something important to say to our culture.
