“Beast Academy promotes team-talk and team thinking. That’s not typical in instruction in mathematics. It provides the framework, structure, and motivation for students to learn from each other as well as from the material.”
— Jolene Teske, Supervisor of Gifted and Talented Education

Why Beast Academy?

At Beast Academy, we’re creating resilient, confident problem solvers.

Tough but Accessible Challenges

Through productive struggle, elementary students develop the perseverance and problem solving skills to overcome obstacles in school and in life.

Student Ownership of Learning

With problem solving comes creativity, collaboration, and freedom to figure out tough problems in ways that make sense to each student.

Math as a Language

The earlier we introduce students to thought-provoking curriculum, the easier it is to learn and retain. Students develop greater learning capacity each year, compounding their ability for growth.

Deeper Conceptual Understanding

We designed the curriculum we wish we had growing up — one that is truly engaging, rigorous, and comprehensive. It’s focused on higher-order reasoning skills, not drills and memorization.

Teachers & Students Know Us Best

Even my highest students still have to stop and really think about the problems.
Jill Solomon, Director of Studies, Oakwood School
“One of our learners … said it is the first time he's ever been challenged in Math. Another, dyslexic learner, shared how he loves the puzzles and they make so much sense.”
Kathryn Veldhuizen, Head of School, Acton Academy
“One student decided he was a mathematician since he did so well on a particular chapter.”
Julie Miller, Gifted and Talented Teacher, St. Anthony-New Brighton School District
“It may have been the first time he had to work that long on a problem. He was in heaven — and so much pride when it was completed.”*
Lisa Friend-Kalupa, Advanced Learning Specialist, Madison Metropolitan School District
“It builds the confidence of my students but also helps them build grit, and knowing that math isn’t always linear.”
Diana Castellanos, Teacher, Madison Metropolitan School District
“My students are excited to come to math class! The guide books are fun to read, and we love discovering hidden jokes throughout the books. The problems have a nice range of complexity and my students are excited to do the puzzles scattered throughout.”
