The fourth session of Upper Canada College’s popular public offering -- UCC Math Select, an elite math competition training program for boys and girls in Grades 4 through 9 -- is set to begin January 28.
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 4 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.
