Where San Diego's Most Motivated Students Go To Learn

Our educational materials have been used by some of the top students in the country to prepare for prestigious mathematics competitions—and those students say our materials helped them win. Our materials are also used at the top schools in the area, such as Santa Fe Christian School and Bishop’s in La Jolla.

Our mathematics and language arts courses are far more rigorous than what you'll find elsewhere. Even if you're not planning on entering your student into competitions, surrounding your child with highly motivated learners keeps them engaged and excited for more. For many students, the sense of community and support they find in their AoPS courses is one of the most rewarding aspects of attending.

Best of all? You don't have to drive hours to get to us. We're at 11455 El Camino Real, Suite 150, San Diego, CA 92130, close to the 5 and 56 Freeways.

We offer a range of courses suitable for students in grades 2 through 12, with classes meeting after school or on weekends.

Our elementary school math courses help give younger students a strong grasp of foundational mathematics concepts, while our middle and high school math courses teach core subject material in far greater depth than most schools can provide. Students enrolled in our test preparation courses have successfully competed in many national contests, such as MOEMS, AMC, and of course, MATHCOUNTS.

When it comes to language arts, our courses are often so popular (and effective) that they’re fully booked within days of being announced. From book clubs, to creative writing, to academic writing, we have language arts courses that will help students of all grade levels prepare for what they'll face in school and beyond.

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.

My children love AoPS Academy and look forward to class every week. AoPS maintains a high standard with their focus on high-achieving students and selective admissions process. I truly admire the staff's skill at keeping students engaged and challenged.
Sumali S
The staff at AoPS Academy do a great job helping students reach their fullest potential. My children have learned to think logically and creatively through solving tough problems. I'm glad we found this valuable resource!
Usha D
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.
