Academic Year Courses

Costs for AoPS Academy Academic Year Courses consist of the following:

  • Annual registration fee: $45 for registrations before January 1, $25 for registrations on or after January 1. This fee is charged once per academic year per student. The fee is only paid once if a student enrolls in multiple courses.
  • Curriculum fee: $50 per course. This fee covers books (including online books, where applicable) and other resources that students receive as part of the instruction for each course. For courses that require a textbook, $25 of the curriculum fee will be refunded after enrollment if you notify the director that you already have the textbook.
  • Annual tuition: The annual tuition for each Academic Year Course is paid in 3 installments of $595 each. The installments will be charged during Week 1, Week 13, and Week 25 of each course.

When enrolling before a course begins, the curriculum fee, the registration fee, and a $100 deposit are due upon enrollment. The deposit is credited towards the first tuition payment. If a student enrolls after Academic Year courses have started, the curriculum fee, registration fee, and the prorated trimester tuition are due upon enrollment. After the initial payment made at the time of enrollment, the remaining tuition installments described above will be automatically charged to the credit card on file without further authorization.

If a student drops an Academic Year Course before the course starts, then we will issue a full refund of tuition and all associated fees. If the student drops an Academic Year Course before the third class after the student enrolls, then we will issue a full refund of the tuition for the course (but not the registration or curriculum fee).

A student may withdraw before the second trimester payment if they give notice by November 1st. There are no refunds of fees already paid upon such withdrawal, though there will not be a charge for the second or third trimester's tuition if the student withdraws before November 1st. Similarly, if a student gives a withdrawal notice before February 1st, then there will not be a charge for the third trimester's tuition.

Summer Courses

The tuition for each Summer Course covers the entire course and all associated materials. For enrollments that are more than one week before the start of a course, a $200 deposit is required at the time of enrollment, with the balance due one week before the course begins. For enrollments less than one week before the start of a course, or after the course begins, the full course fee is due at the time of enrollment. The full cost for each course is shown on the Course Schedule page.

If a student drops a Summer Course before the course starts, then we will issue a full refund for the course tuition (including the $200 deposit). No refund will be issued for students who withdraw after a Summer Course has started.

"My children have been students of AoPS Academy for several years now. The staff is very good at identifying and encouraging high achieving students to attain their fullest potential. The instructors engage kids to solve tough math problems, and push them to think logically and come up with unique solutions, instead of following a memorized formula. I have witnessed many classes where students are given the opportunity to suggest multiple ways of approaching the same problem. This has really helped my children develop independent learning skills and a stronger foundation in mathematics. The staff truly care for each and every student’s growth. Every child gets an abundance of individual attention. Programs such as the math competition classes, MATHCOUNTS Trainer Contest, and Short Story Contest really challenge the kids to reach up to the next level. The language arts classes like Debate & Public Speaking and College Essay Writing provide a much higher quality of education for their students. Thank you so much for being such a valuable resource for my children. "
