About Us

The Mission of the program is...

  • To deliver to exceptional mathematics students a curriculum that challenges them in the same way that standard school curricula challenges students of lesser ability.
  • To positively serve this subset of exceptional students (which even the largest schools cannot serve adequately).
  • To place emphasis on providing skills for students who may pursue future university work in mathematics, other sciences, or the humanities; rather than on the development of professional mathematicians.
  • To capture the interest of young scholars at a critical time in their development.
  • To cultivate positive attitudes toward serious academic endeavors.
  • To encourage development of good work habits.
  • To improve our students' willingness and ability to address more difficult and extended problems.
  • To read and learn from mathematical writing.
  • For students to compete with students of their own ability.
  • To stay the course.
