Math Competition Training for Boys and Girls

UCC Math Select brings the thrill of competition to the math arena, training students to write and excel at North America’s most popular math contests — including the Waterloo and American contests.

The program is open to eligible boys and girls in grades 5 through 9 at any school, not just Upper Canada College. Students don’t need experience writing math contests, as instructors will prepare them with the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve the best possible results. They just need a love of math and the desire to take it to the next level.

Next Session Info
UCC Math Select is a series of six two-hour sessions that run on Thursdays after school. There is a fall and winter session, with 2017-2018 dates to be posted in September. The cost is $75 per session (free for UCC students), payable on the first day of class by cheque. Please sign up to be notified of the Fall 2017 session.
