Bryce Aggasid and Luke Vandertie

Santa Fe Christian students, Bryce Aggasid and Luke Vandertie, scored in the top 5 percent of all students worldwide in the American Mathematics Competition. The American Mathematics Competition is a worldwide math exam taken by approximately 200,000 of the world’s best math students and is designed to identify students with exceptional math talent. The two students also received a $1,000 SFC scholarship for their top scores.

In addition to the AMC, Santa Fe Christian Schools’ Math Team competes in many top national and state math competitions each year. Kelly Hoffman, SFC senior, was one of only 500 girls in the nation invited to compete in the “Math Prizes for Girls” at MIT. The team also competes in the Cal Tech Harvey Mudd Math Competition, Mandelbrot Math Competition, UCSD Honors Math Competition and the California Math League, where the SFC Math Team ranked number one of all California religious affiliated schools in 2013.
