Welcome to Communication Academy!

Communication Academy offers after school enrichment classes and camps all year round to students in grades K-12. We were the first to offer Public Speaking courses in Cupertino, CA and have since expanded to offer Debate, Writing, Reading, and Math. We work in partnership with numerous city recreations to offer our classes and camps throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.

Our History

In 2001, the director of Communication Academy, Jackson Chow, was looking for public speaking and debate classes for his seventh grade son who was an aspiring lawyer. The options were few and extremely expensive. This led him to organize his own Public Speaking camp, which took off with incredible success and demand.

Our Mission

We believe that communication is the most important skill to have in life. Having great communication skills will lead you to success in whatever you choose to do.

My daughter loves to go to the speech classes at Communication Academy…it also helped her win the student council election two years in row. I would recommend this place for public speaking programs.

I didn’t expect changes to happen…after the second class he started to be conscious about elements of public speaking…finally in the last class he spoke with a loud and clear voice. All my family were there and felt so surprised by his improvements.
