Project MEGSSS’ mission is to discover, inspire and develop the talents of middle school students with extraordinary gifts in mathematics. We provide “above level” mathematics testing, rigorous summer enrichment programs and our well known, three year after-school mathematics program for qualified students. We serve students who have a high level of aptitude and interest in math, whether they test as gifted or are failing math due to sheer boredom!
Nominations of 5th and 6th grade students, made by parents or teachers, are accepted beginning in January of each year. Parent information meetings are held prior to registration for our unique “out of level” testing event, which focuses on mathematical reasoning ability. After testing, qualified candidates are eligible to take the eight session, summer program which introduces the student to formal logic (propositional calculus) and operational systems. Classes may continue during the regular school term one evening per week, or the student may return the following summer for enrichment classes in probability and number theory.
The program is tuition based, but need-based scholarships or payment plans are available. For over 30 years, Project MEGSSS, Incorporated has operated as a parent-run, 501(c)3 corporation. Programming is available to all qualified students regardless of race, color, gender, creed or national origin. The current Executive Director is a home schooler and can be reached at exec@megsss.org.
