Dates & Tuition

At Stanford Math Circles, we offer three math circle levels: Elementary, Middle School, and High School. All our classes meet on Thursday night. Our circles are offered throughout the academic year from September through May. Our circles fill quickly, so students are accepted on a lottery basis.

Dates

The Stanford Math Circle runs during the Stanford academic year, with 10 sessions each quarter. The fall quarter is from late September through early December, the winter quarter is from January through March, and in the spring quarter is from early April through early June. We do not offer a summer quarter.
