Exceptional Educational Enrichment for Maryland's K-12 Students

Many of America's best math students have prepared for national and international mathematics competitions with us — and they say they couldn't have won without our help.

We know that teaching to the test doesn't pay off. Instead, our math, science, and language arts classes develop the problem-solving skills students will need to find success in school and in life. By learning how concepts work and how to communicate their insights, our students end up performing very well on Maryland's state tests and beyond. They have what it takes to thrive at schools like Eastern, Martin Luther King, Jr., Roberto Clemente, Takoma Park, Montgomery Blair, Poolesville, or Richard Montgomery.

A Problem-Solving Curriculum

Our curriculum is rigorous — it's built to be. If students never feel challenged, they’re not getting to the boundaries of what’s possible. By solving new and complex problems, AoPS students are inspired to expand to their fullest academic potential.

If you’re looking for a challenging, interactive environment where your student will build the skill stack to succeed in school and beyond, you'll find it at AoPS Academy Gaithersburg!

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!
