Advancing Opportunities: 30 Years of Actuaries Unlocking Student Potential

Mission and Vision

For three decades, we have dedicated ourselves to transforming the landscape of math education in the United States, providing free resources to empower young minds. Our focus is on igniting the passion for mathematics and fostering the next generation of problem solvers, innovators, and leaders. Over the years, we have impacted countless lives, and now it's time to commemorate our journey in a grand way.

As we stand at this remarkable milestone, we are privileged to invite those who have made our success possible on an inspiring journey with us. We have many fun activities planned during 2024 and hope you will see one or more that interest you. Feel free to contact Michael Marion with other ideas.

The actuarial profession has rewarded us, our families, and our respective industries — it’s our time to give back.
