San Jose Math Circle and summer vacation

San Jose Math Circle does not meet during summer vacation.
The meeting schedule for 2018-19 will be updated in early September.
We usually make an on-line admission announcement by August 15. The deadline for applying is usually in early September.

Time to apply to summer Math Camps

San Jose Math Circle does not offer a summer program, but around the U.S. there are many great math summer camps. The best summer programs usually have an application process and are selective.
MathPath is already accepting applications for summer 2018; they have a "rolling admissions" process.


The current people that help keep the San Jose Math Circle up and running are, first of all, our session leaders, and then the following:

Directors of SJMC:

Tom Davis and Tatiana Shubin
