Our Public Programs

Math Select

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 12 at any school, not just Upper Canada College. Students in grades 5 to 8 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. Students interested in the senior program should have some math contest writing experience in order to fully benefit from the program (AMC score of 60 or higher preferred).
