National Math Competition Preparation Program (NMCP)

National Math Competition Preparation Program (NMCP)


The goal of this program is to prepare students for the full circuit of elite national and international mathematical competitions — those that require intellectual agility as well as more traditional math olympiads that necessitate mathematical depth, rigor, and creativity, namely, American Mathematics Competition (AMC 8, AMC 10 and AMC 12), American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME), and United States of America (Junior) Mathematical Olympiad (US(J)AMO).  

There are only 150 spots available and the NMCP program has a highly selective admissions process. It is comprised of the strongest RSM students and advanced students from the MCP program.
