Tuitions and Fees

Tuitions

Email us at info@AvidAcademy.com for more details.

Materials

There is a materials fee of $35.00 per session.  It covers the costs of math contest participation fees, classroom handouts, problem sets, and other instructional materials.  It does not cover the costs of problem solving textbooks.

Problem Solving Textbook

Some of the classes require textbooks.  Problem solving textbook prices range from $45.00 - $75.00 depending on the training program.  The cost of the textbook will be billed separately.
