In the past, this Institute has been one of the most competitive gifted mathematics programs in the nation. Although approximately 600 students were nominated from schools all over Long Island last year, we could accept only 87 students due to our limited budget.

Please limit your nominations to those students who you feel will truly benefit from our Institute.
