Art of Problem Solving (AoPS) develops educational opportunities for many of the most eager students in the world. Since 2003, we have trained tens of thousands of the country’s top students, including nearly all the members of the US International Math Olympiad team, through our online school, learning centers, textbooks, and online learning systems. Over the years, our international online community of advanced problem solvers has grown to over 800,000 members. While our primary focus has been math for most of our history, we have started expanding into new subjects, such as language arts, science, and computer science.

Just like our traditional AoPS Academy experience, our range of math course offerings at the AoPS Academy Virtual Campus allows students the opportunity to explore new interests while strengthening their math and problem-solving skills.

With small class sizes and a virtual classroom setting that allows participants to see and talk to each other in real time via Zoom, our students will have access to some of the most highly accomplished instructors in the nation, and we want you to be one of them!
