The Winter 2023 enrollment for regular classes is now open. It will close on 12/26. We will then open registration for the math competitions prep classes and for the chess club. Returning students should apply for the regular classes they attended in the Fall 2022 quarter. Returning students in good standing will be re-registered automatically once they apply. Only students registered for regular classes will be considered for the math competitions prep classes and for the chess club.

Donations form a crucial component of the Circle's budget. Quarterly donations at the level of $250 per student 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.
