Math Whiz Students Qualify for Esteemed Olympiad

Math Whiz Students Qualify for Esteemed Olympiad

The United States of America Mathematical Olympiad (USAMO) is a highly selective annual math competition. The United States of America Junior Mathematical Olympiad (USAJMO) is an elite exam determining the top math students in America in tenth grade and below. Qualification for either competition is considered one of the most prestigious designations for high school students.

Kevin Han '23 qualified for the USAMO and Cyrus Chung '26 qualified to take the USAJMO. "Qualifying for USAMO is a great honor, and I feel proud of myself. I also want to thank my parents and tutor for supporting me throughout my academic journey. I couldn't have accomplished these without them," said Kevin Han '23.

Since 1972 the USAMO has served as the final round of the American Mathematics Competitions. In 2010 the contest split into the USAMO and the USAJMO.

"I've always liked math and started taking advanced math classes, which exposed me to competitions. I'm very excited to participate in the USAJMO. It is a six-question, nine-hour exam over two days, with increasing difficulty for each set of three questions," said Cyrus Chung '26.

Congratulations to both students for their outstanding achievements.
