“If you are a young nerd in Connecticut, looking for a middle school or after school program, I highly recommend Talcott. I went to Talcott Mountain Academy, a small school that believed in hiring teachers who knew and loved mathematics and science. They focused on letting us explore and experiment, taking walks in the woods to learn to identify stages of forest growth, learning to work with chemicals and chemical apparatus, and wiring circuit boards. My math teacher, Mr. Frazier, was always playing with a new computation or puzzle and would pull me aside to share new challenges with me.”
