Learning Goal

By the end of this course, students will understand all of the foundational elements of the course, along with applications of these concepts.

Students will also gain access to numerous academic resources to advance their understanding.

Students in Algebra 1, Geometry, and Algebra 2 bootcamps will also be exposed to word problems frequently found on the TJ Admissions test.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Q: What is the class size? What is the student:instructor ratio?
A: We cap our student to instructor ratio at 9:1. In other words, for every 9 students, we have at least 1 instructor present. This helps ensure that each student is able to receive plenty of individualized attention throughout the course.

Q: What if I can't attend one of the classes? What is the makeup policy?

A: No worries, we record every session, so every student can stay on pace. All students and parents will have access to the course material including recordings for the following year.

Q: How much homework can my student expect to receive per week?

A: Students can expect to receive 4-5 hours of homework between sessions, for a total of 32-40 hours of assignments outside of the class.

Q: Whom does this curriculum apply to?
A: This curriculum is geared towards students entering the math course the following year or summer. For example, if a student is currently in Algebra 1, but will be starting Geometry next Fall or this Summer, the Geometry bootcamp is most appropriate.

Q: Is there a sibling discount?

A: Yes! We have a $100 discount per family, for any families with two siblings who are enrolled in any of our bootcamps in the same year. Please email us to receive this discount.
