We offer year round USACO Bronze and Advanced Bronze (USA Computing Olympiad) training classes at students’ appropriate levels. USACO is the most prestigious pre-college Computer Science competition in the states. For more information on USACO: http://www.usaco.org.

Scope of Our Curriculum

Our entire USACO curriculums at all levels are 100% proprietary and built in-house, and can be found at no other place.
We spent thousands of hours analyzing contest problems in all recent years and levels, performed extensive and meticulous data analysis to derive the list of skills/algorithms and data structures students need to learn for each specific levels – no more and no less, and then select the best problem sets for each topic.  We develop the curriculum with only one goal in mind that is the success for the students in their contest, therefore the curriculum of each level includes ALL topics that they need to know for each specific level within 15 lessons, this way we stay focused and targeted, and help students succeed in the most efficiently and targeted manner.

Objective

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

Prerequisites

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:  

Students should be comfortable writing program in Java (or C, C++) with all following knowledges and skills:

    • conditional statements
    • loops
    • array
    • functions
    • recursion

IMPORTANT NOTE: **NOT** like a lot of the USACO Bronze classes offered from other institutes, we do REQUIRE students to already possess the basic fundamental programming skills (preferable in Java but other languages are 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.
