information page to be provided with enrollment materials. Cell phone usage is allowed, but is not permitted
during Math Academy classes or activities.

Yes, students are required to be in their residence halls by 9 p.m. and are expected to be in their rooms by 10
What type of supervision exists?
Students are supervised by an adult at all times during activities. Each team consists of 12-16 students and two
