Summer Offerings

MathJam is a summer challenge experience for incoming students ages 10-14, designed to:

  • Nurture mathematics interest in younger students,
  • Introduce middle school students to advanced topics not covered in a school setting, and
  • Provide activity-based experiences that allow students to make connections between mathematics, science, art, and literature.

Nominations and admission testing are not required for MathJam. Students should be interested in math exploration and score at the 90th percentile or higher on standardized tests. For 2021, MathJam is a 2-week online summer camp, offered in both June and July. We also have an online bonus week of Puzzles and Programming, one of our  most popular MathJam courses!

We have an exicting summer of online enrichment planned for your children. Let's keep the summer slump at bay while we have fun with math!

Which classes should I take? 

Project MEGSSS offers courses which are designed for students who are self-motivated and desire math challenge, not students looking for remediation. Classes available for students ages 10 to 14 (by August 1, 2021)

When should I register?

Registrations for June must be completed by May 26th, 2021. Registrations for July must be completed by June 26th, 2021. A $15 late fee will apply after that date. 

Unless you have applied for financial aid, your seat can only be held once full payment is received. When applying for financial aid (this does not include students applying through the educator-directed scholarship program), you must pay a refundable $25 fee to hold your seat. This payment will be refunded if financial accommodations offered are insufficient to meet your needs. 

For more information on financial aid, see below. Payment may be made online during online registration. Late registration fees apply after the above dates.

Financial Aid Options

We offer two financial aid programs, and we encourage applications before the deadline of May 17th for June registrations and June 25th for July registrations. Decisions will be made prior to May 26th for June registrations and prior to June 14th for July registrations. All applicants must have registered for courses, or the application will be denied. 

1.      Families who are eligible for federal lunch programs are eligible for our educator-directed scholarship that streamlines the application process. In 2020, students in districts where all receive federal lunch programs must also meet an income test and provide income verification. Please inquire at nomination@megsss.org

2.     For all others, financial aid applications are accepted online. Submission of the most recent federal tax return is required for this process.

Refunds 

June and July registrations can be fully refunded or applied to the half-day online courses, with the option to have any difference refunded, donated to MEGSSS, or held as a credit and applied to future programming. All refunds and credits must be requested no less than two weeks before the program for which they were originally registered begins or the sale is considered final and no refunds or credits will be issued after that time. Should a course be cancelled due to lack of enrollment we will contact you to begin the refund process.
