National Math Challenge Program

National Math Challenge Program


The NMCP is designed for those students interested in advanced mathematical topics as well as participating in regional and national math contests. Students are selected based on the recommendation of their principal and the results of a qualifying exam. This is a serious course that prepares students for the full circuit of mathematical competitions — those that require intellectual agility as well as more traditional math olympiads that necessitate mathematical depth, rigor, and creativity. 


We are no longer accepting students for the 2018-2019 academic year. If you are interested in the program please keep checking back here for information regarding the dates of the qualifying exam for the 2019-2020 year.
