Students already taking a Basic (Part 1) Fall class can take spring semester curriculum during the winter term in a camp format. Once the foundational basic curriculum is mastered, the incoming spring semester can be used as a practice period until the examinations.

Students who are currently taking Advanced class can take Problem Solving (PS) classes during the winter term in a camp format to master problem solving skills.

New students intending to catch up, can do so with our fall term self paced online video courses before the winter camp or they can start with Part 1 classes during the second session.
