The Prove it! Math Academy residential summer program will not be offered in 2024. Big changes are in the works to provide our unique curriculum and high-quality resources to a wider audience of math enthusiasts. Check this site for updates and announcements.


Prove it! Math Academy is held every two years, hosted by the Department of Mathematics at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. Nestled at the base of the Rocky Mountains at the north end of Colorado’s front range, Fort Collins is a safe, naturally beautiful, and culturally vibrant college town.

The unique location allows us to balance work and play at Prove it! Math Academy. The daytime classes will be held in CSU’s well-equipped classrooms and computer labs. In the evenings students will have free time to work on problems with their fellow students, use the campus recreational facilities, or join one of the downtown outings led by the program counselors. We will also take advantage of the close proximity to the Rocky Mountains on our field trip to Rocky Mountain National Park.


Participants will be staying in Laurel Village Piñon Hall in suite-style double rooms with a private bathroom. There will be two students to a room, so each student will have one roommate. The rooms are air-conditioned and each have two twin beds, two desks, and a window with curtains.

Students are expected to reside in the dormitories, as we believe that part of the experience of Prove it! Math Academy is the opportunity to interact with like-minded students both inside and outside of the classroom. The dormitories have study lounges that students can use in the evening to work on math problems, play card games, etc. with their fellow students. Free internet access is available on the CSU campus.

If there are special circumstances that would make it important for a student to provide their own accommodations, please contact us at


Students will be provided a meal card that gives them access to the Durrell Dining Center, in the newly renovated Durrell Hall, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day of the program other than arrival and departure day. Additionally, dinner will be provided for all students on the arrival day and breakfast will be provided for all students on the departure day.
