UCLA Olga Radko Endowed Math Circle

Welcome to ORMC

Summer 2022 Session Information

Application period for the Summer 2022 session is now over.

Summer 2022 calendar:

  • Summer session's first meeting: Sunday, June 26th
  • Summer session's last meeting: Sunday, August 28th
  • No classes on Sunday, July 3rd, the Independence Day weekend

Covid-19 regulations: we have a policy change!

ORMC students and accompanying adults are now considered non-UCLA affiliates. Hence they need to take a monitoring survey at the following link:


prior to coming to classes, one survey for a child, another for the accompanying adult. Taking the survey generates a passing slip that we will check on parents' cellphones. Indoor masks are required for everyone. We will not be checking vaccination status any more. If the Covid-19 situation changes, so may our policy. 


Donations form a crucial component of the Circle's budget. Donations at the level of $250 per child per quarter are needed to sustain the high quality of our program.  Please consider ORMC as a part of your giving plans this season! Donations are not a factor in enrollment decisions and do not entitle your child to enrollment.

Classes' information:

  • All classes take place on Sundays.
  • If the Covid-19 situation does not worsen, all the ORMC Summer 2022 classes will be taught in person.
