SpringLight Education started USACO training since 2013. Our students received great results on USACO at all levels including finalist. Some of them had been admitted into many top colleges like MIT, Harvard, Stanford, CalTech, Harvey Mudd, UC Berkeley and more other colleges.
Most of the students who attended our USACO training classes and finished the homework qualified the next level like silver, gold level and platinum. Many of them got 1000 the perfect score.

USACO Class Prerequisite
Bronze requirements: Understanding of basic Java or C++. Can write code without syntax errors, and knows basics such as arrays, loops, conditionals.
Silver requirements: Fluency in Java or C++. Ability to consistently solve Bronze problems. You should be very familiar with conditional statements (if/else), loops (for/while), arrays, and strings. Knowledge in classes, object-oriented programming, comparators, iterators, etc. is preferred.
Gold requirements: Ability to consistently solve silver problems. The Gold material assumes knowledge of Silver class material, such as knowing how to do BFS, DFS, and sorting, as well as know how to use standard data structures like arraylists, linked lists, stacks, queues, deques, heaps (priority queues), and binary search trees (TreeMap/map, TreeSet/set).
Platinum Requirements: Already qualified USACO Platinum level.

黄老师有着丰富的programming，AP CS 和USACO计算机奥赛的教学经验，并取得了显著的教学成果。黄老师将自己的儿子从USACO最初级铜级（Bronze）带到USACO的最高级白金级（Platinum），而且不少学生满分晋级银级Silver，以及金级Gold和白金级P
Dr. Huang has many years of teaching experience in programming, AP CS ans USACO. He has guided his son from Bronze to Platinum in the USACO contest. A lot of his students advanced to Silver with full score, and many others advanced to Gold and Platinum. Dr. Huang will lead students from computational theories to the strategy of coding with contest examples.
Chris Zhang is 2 times USACO camper with deep knowledge of the USACO algorithm and excellent teaching skill. He prepared the material to best suit for the USACO purpose. The material of the class has guided the students to better understand the complexity of the silver level USACO problems. Chris delivered the knowledge so well that 2/3 of his class students passed the test, with several of them got the full score 1000.
