Who*:      Students entering 6th to 12th grade in school year 2014 - 2015.

Why?      We apply seminar-style teaching in our classes. We believe students learn best by discovering, rather than simply memorizing, essential theorems and techniques. Our process puts students at the center of the classes, as students work together to develop their ideas. Our instructors lead this process by teaching vital ideas, giving meaningful examples, and guiding students through the problem-solving process.
