Exceptional Education for Santa Clara’s Brightest Students

Art of Problem Solving began by creating books and materials to help students prepare for math competitions–books that those competitors say helped them win. We expanded on those materials, creating a comprehensive math curriculum that has grown to cover elementary, middle, and high school mathematics.

And we didn’t stop there. AoPS Academies bring our problem solving methodology into the classroom, teaching language arts courses in addition to mathematics. Our courses prepare students for the rigors of elite colleges and STEM careers, and the academy environment immerses students in a culture where they’re rewarded for having a passion for learning.

If you’re looking for an after-school program that provides the educational enrichment and preparation that your student needs for success, apply for admission at AoPS Academy Santa Clara.

Our Santa Clara site is convenient for Cupertino and San Jose families. Find us at 777 Lawrence Expressway, where it meets East Homestead Road.

We offer a wide range of courses in mathematics and language arts for grades 2-12, ranging from core subject courses to supplemental topics including contest math and book clubs. Our math courses are the best in the country, teaching the same path to mastery used by the best math competitors in the country. We’re not limited to mathematics, either—our language arts courses help students prepare for the challenges they’ll face in top universities.

We teach math and language arts in a way that prepares students much more thoroughly than simple test prep. Our materials focus on challenging problems, taught by exceptional teachers with advanced degrees in their fields. This focus on problem-solving instead of rote memorization is key to our students’ success.

Families looking for educational excellence will find it at AoPS!

My nine-year-old son LOVES his class! The math is inspiring, the teacher has a wonderful sense of humor, and he got to meet other students who love math as much as he does. Amazing job! Thank goodness we found AoPS!
Excited Dad
My younger son is a very active learner and had been completely turned off math by the 'memorize and repeat' work he did before coming to AoPS Academy. He used to fight every teacher on math work. Now he's zipping through the Beast Academy workbooks and online practice. In just a short amount of time with your math program, he’s become a little math guy!
Jean R
My son just took the SAT and got a perfect 800 in math. Thanks, AoPS Academy, for helping him advance his skills!
Thrilled Mom
My son used to feel awful and give up when he got math problems wrong. But it doesn’t seem to bother him this year, and he's developing persistence as he works on hard problems. Thank you for helping kids take on challenges and really shine!
Happy Dad
Many academic centers repeat concepts over and over, but AoPS Academy is different. Their highly qualified instructors teach in much greater depth and get students interested in complex problems. It's a great learning experience in a friendly, fun, and challenging environment.

AoPS Academy has a superb curriculum and outstanding teachers. If only we could have experienced math like this when we were young!
Molly and Richard T
Our son loves math and science and really feels at home at AoPs Academy. He's found a community of peers there who value his abilities and he's learned that it's okay to be good at math.
Neil D
Sending my child to AoPS Academy was one of the best decisions I've ever made. His math skills have improved dramatically, and I'm very impressed with everyone who works there. I'd recommend AoPS Academy to any parent wanting to help develop their child's potential.
