Train to win with UCC Math Select

Space is filling up quickly for Upper Canada College’s inaugural session of UCC Math Select, an elite math competition training program for boys and girls in Grades 5 through 9.

UCC Math Select brings the thrill of competition to the math arena. Students will train to write and excel at North America’s most popular math contests like the Waterloo Contests and the American Mathematics Contests.

The program is open to eligible boys and girls in grades 5 through 9 at any school, not just Upper Canada College. In order to qualify, candidates must demonstrate an interest and aptitude in math through an online entrance test. You do not need experience writing math contests – we will prepare you with the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve your best possible results. You just need a love of math and the desire to take it to the next level.

Program Details

There are two seven-week sessions. We recommend students participate in both sessions but each can be done individually.

SESSION ONE Tuesday October 14 – Tuesday November 25
SESSION TWO Tuesday January 27 – Tuesday March 10

TIME 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
LOCATION Upper Canada College, 200 Lonsdale Road (St Clair & Avenue Road)
COST $150.00/session (Free for eligible UCC students. Financial assistance is available, please contact us to apply.)

How to Apply

In order to be considered for UCC Math Select, you must submit an online form and complete a sample test. Successful candidates will be contacted within three business days of applying.
