About our summer math program:

We know this was a difficult year. That's why we have provided course offerings that will serve students no matter their goal for the summer and upcoming school year.

Students in grades K - 12 can choose from a variety of math courses including those that will reinforce their knowledge and prepare them for the upcoming school year or math competition courses that will provide them with additional challenge. Test prep courses including SAT I, ISEE, and more are also available. 

Both online (taught in a live, interactive, virtual classroom setting), and in-person classes may be available.
