Forensics

The world of high school forensics is exciting, challenging, and rewarding. There may be no other co-curricular activity that can do more to build poise, confidence, and strong self-esteem. Forensics offers immediate rewards, such as ribbons, medals, and trophies. In addition each participant will receive a lifetime of rewards—just ask any alumnus of the program.
 
Luther Preparatory School has been active in interscholastic forensic for nearly 60 years beginning competition in 1956. It is through the devotion and enthusiasm of Luther Preparatory School students and through the encouragement and guidance of parents and coaches, that forensics has grown to be such a popular and successful activity at Luther Preparatory School
