About Our Math Programs

Our math program offers classes from Preschool through 10th Level. The higher Level courses cover both algebra and geometry, introduce new topics and offer students challenging problems. Our curriculum integrates advanced subjects into the standard school program, and includes SAT1 and SAT2 preparation. We aspire to make your child fall in love with math, while helping them succeed in school and on standardized tests.
