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.
