The Institute for Creative Problem Solving for Gifted and Talented Students was founded by Dr. Jong Pil Lee in 1992 in response to the report “National Excellence: The Case for Developing America’s Talents”. The report described the crisis of gifted students being underserved in American education, in particular, the lack of participation of women and minorities in mathematics and science programs.
The course is tuition free to all participants. Funding for the program is by donations from corporate sponsors and individuals who see the effectiveness and importance of our program and who want us to be able to continue our work to improve the problem-solving skills of many generations to come.
There is a $40 fee to take the entrance examination. This fee can be waived based upon need.
