Of all Olympiad competitions (USABO, USAPhO, USAMO, etc.), the USA Computing Olympiad (USACO) has the smallest participation. There are also four competitions every year – all other Olympiads take place only once a year. The participation every time is only around one to two thousand students, with no limit on the number of awards given out. Compare this to other Olympiads, which normally limit awards to the top 10% of participants. Competition starts at the Bronze level, and goes to Silver, Gold, and Platinum. After reaching a level, you can compete starting at that level every time, unlike other Olympiads where you must start from the bottom every year. Last year, the Platinum level was added, making the Bronze level much easier to pass. As long as you are comfortable with programming and have some competition skills, you can easily reach the Silver level.
SpringLight has also been providing USACO preparation classes for 5 years with amazing results. Most of our students have received awards at the Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Finalist levels. Many of them received perfect score 1000. As long as students can understand the condensed content and do the homework, they will quickly be on their way to the upper levels.
SpringLight’s USACO Bronze course is aimed for students who have taken introductory Java or C++ courses, but who may not need to be very experienced with programming. This course can improve basic programming skills and teach competition skills to students.
