For Parents

Why Consider Project MEGSSS for Your Child?

You know your child better than anyone. Has your child ever really experienced a challenge in mathematics? Is it hard to find true academic peers for your child?

The advantages of attending Project MEGSSS: 

  • Your child will be challenged by a series of courses designed specifically for math-talented students in the top 5% of their peers.
  • Students will deepen their math ability, as well as have the potential to accelerate, both vertically and horizontally, the study of mathematics.
  • They will meet and interact with other talented students of the same approximate age.
  • Perhaps for the first time, your child will experience the intellectual challenge of a rigorous program well beyond that of the traditional school setting.
  • Your student will walk away with an increased confidence in their intellectual abilities, especially as it pertains to mathematics.

What does MEGSSS have to offer?

  • Our above-level mathematics testing allows for early identification of math-talented students in need of advancement during the middle school years. 
  • Check out our Elements (open to nominations of 5th/6th graders, summer and after-school for 6-8th grades) and MathJam (4th through 7th graders, summer only) programs. 
  • Attend an Information Meeting with your student to learn more about our program. 
  • Nominate your child HERE, and we will send you more information during our nomination season, which begins each January.
