Our Advanced Math Students aced PSAT Math with a 99th percentile (most getting a full score), with zero dedicated preparation for PSAT.

100% of our Advanced Math 9th graders aced the Pre-Calculus CDM (Credit by Demonstrated Mastery), allowing them to skip Pre-Calculus and go straight to AP Calculus.

In Competition Math, our team of 5th graders emerged as the highest scoring JV team in the 2019 December - Charlotte Tri-Mathlon, while competing with 18 of the best middles schools from the greater Charlotte area. One of our then 5th grade students was the top individual scorer in JV. Charlotte Tri-Mathlon is a MathCounts style competition for middle school students.

In another Competition Math event (MaPP), the same 5th grader team placed 4th out of around 12 middle school and high school teams. The top 4 teams differed by 1 point with each other.

Our students have been consistent top scorers in elementary school Math Olympiad (#1 in school) and Math Kangaroo (top 5, top 10, top 20 national rank)

A short video about our approach to Advanced Math Problem Solving

innovative approach

A proprietary curriculum rich in problem solving

Engaging classrooms where students are encouraged to analyze problems from different perspectives

Low volume homework but with content rich in problem solving that challenges students' thinking without being repetitive.

Our curriculum will challenge your child beyond grade level math but in a very engaging and collaborative teaching style that draws on their problem solving skills without the high pressure of homework.

Benefits your child may see

Increased confidence in embracing new math concepts with a higher likelihood of success in problem solving

Since they will be mastering many concepts ahead of time, they will need to dedicate much less time to school math, in order to excel. The time saved they can apply to other subject areas for school

They will develop the good habits of persistence, detail orientation, creative thinking that will have positive impact in all walks of their student lives

Program Details

Core Math

  • Combines concepts from multiple levels to create your child's problem solving journey.
  • Program will focus on core concepts but goes well beyond school curriculum with challenging problems and a heavy focus on creative problem solving.

Competition Math (3rd grade and up)

The exciting world of Competition Mathematics can often be classified into theory building and/or problem solving. Of course all mathematicians solve problems, while only a few are great theory builders. Theory building involves developing repeatable solution strategies that can be applied in problem solving and the building of structures that enable us to see patterns out of what appears to be chaos.

This Competition Math classes take students in an exciting journey full of theory-building AND problem solving enrichment. It is designed to encourage children to embrace problem solving as an exciting and uplifting social activity.

  • Level1 (Grades 3 - 5): MOEMS (Math Olympiad), Math Kangaroo
  • Level2 (Grades 4 - 8): MathCounts, AMC 8, AMC 10.
