Our USACO Bronze Class

We offer year round USACO Bronze Online Training classes. USACO(USA Computing Olympiad) is the most prestigious pre-college Computer Science competition in the United States. For more information on USACO:

What is different about our curriculum?

  • Our curriculum is uniquely created based on analysis of ALL contest problems from all recent years and levels. We performed extensive and meticulous data analysis on each and every problem to create the best and most targeted list of topics to maximize students’ chance to succeed in their contest, with the best balance of efficiency and completeness.
  • This course covers THE ENTIRE set of techniques that students need to learn to pass the USACO Bronze contest. Compared to many other USACO curriculum, you spend LESS TIME, LESS TUITION, and LEARN MORE.  All other USACO curriculums that we see involves more lessons and not even cover everything students need to learn.  This is true also for Silver and Gold level curriculums.

Prepare students to pass the the USACO contest at Bronze level and get promoted to the Silver division, most of our students pass Bronze level on first attempt, and many with full scores!


       *** Please note: our bronze class requires students to already have possessed fundamental programming skill. 

Minimum requirement: Beginner Programming level required (Java preferred). Intermediate or higher level preferred.

Students should be comfortable writing program in Java (or C, C++) using functions, conditional statements, loops and array, and enjoy logical thinking and problem solving.

NOTE: Not like a lot of the USACO Bronze classes offered from some other institutes, we do REQUIRE students to already possess the fundamental programming skills (preferable in Java but other languages is fine too).  Our bronze level class is truly a contest and competition preparation,  and focuses on problem solving, algorithms and data structures, and consistently delivers more advanced topics and contents.  For students who wants to learn programming for the purpose of competition, they should take our fundamental programming classes first which are roughly equivalent to what students will learn first from many other institutes’ bronze level classes.


  • Brute Force
  • Sorting and Searching
