AoPS Academy Gaithersburg Campus

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 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.

Want your child taught by local teachers using the materials that actual math Olympians have used? Enroll at AoPS Academy!

Best of all, you don't have to drive hours to get to us. We're at 9711 Washingtonian Blvd, Ste 150, right off I-270 near the RIO shopping center.

We don't "teach to the test.”

We teach math and language arts in a way that lets students engage deeply with concepts and understand the material on a more comprehensive level. Our lessons focus on challenging problems, and our instructors teach students how to find solutions by thinking deeply and choosing the right tools. Being equipped with the skills to solve a wide variety of problems is far more valuable than rote memorization.

Our students learn how to think critically, look for logical solutions, and discover new techniques as needed, rather than pulling from a crib sheet of memorized formulas they don’t really understand. We’re training today’s brightest minds to solve tomorrow’s problems.

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!

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.
