||Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science
||eIMACS, the distance learning division of the Institute for Mathematics & Computer Science (IMACS), is dedicated to delivering the highest quality interactive math and computer science classes for gifted and talented secondary school students. University-level, online courses include Advanced Mathematical Logic, University Computer Science, AP Computer Science, and Test Prep for the AP Computer Science and AP Calculus exams. eIMACS is based in Plantation, Florida, and serves students from across the US and around the world, including homeschoolers, students without access to AP Computer Science, and students who want to study advanced math and computer science at their own pace. For high school level courses for talented middle school-aged children, consider Elements of Mathematics: Foundations (EMF).

IMACS is an amazing program that emphasizes logic-based problem solving and critical thinking skills. Its innovative curriculum is ingeniously woven into fun games and puzzles, and gives a rock-solid foundation in critical thinking and logic. I’ve taken almost all of their logic, computer science, and math enrichment classes. The quality of their courses is outstanding and, in my experience, unique. I always looked forward to my weekly IMACS sessions and online eIMACS courses. Thanks to IMACS, I had the logical and conceptual foundation to thrive in college mathematics and computer science courses at Carnegie Mellon and Stanford as a high school freshman!

I cannot thank IMACS enough for being an integral part of my admission to MIT. IMACS helped shape my dreams and goals in many ways and was where I fell in love with programming. The first online resource I always strongly recommend to high school students who are interested in math and computer science is eIMACS. Those courses set a firm base for my programming knowledge and turned out to be only too valuable during college.

IMACS programming courses are great for teaching computer science at both a beginning and more advanced level. They've helped me so much in learning how to code and in understanding deeper concepts. I'm sure the skills I've gained will be very valuable in my future job as an engineer. Thanks to IMACS and its great teachers, I am now learning my fourth programming language! As a girl, I want to encourage other girls to join IMACS and discover programming as a long-term interest. Computer science is not usually offered in middle schools, making IMACS a wonderful addition to any student's course load. With the help of these courses, I plan to contribute to shaping the future of technology.
