Eat Pie Institute                mathematics and the humanities  

Engage. Explore. Alter reality.


Welcome to 
eατ · πie Institute!

Initiated in 2011 by Sabrina Chen, the 2013 Alabama State Co-Coach for National MATHCOUNTS and Scholastic National Medalist in Poetry, eατ πie has grown into a program whose materials have helped students nationwide to prepare for MATHCOUNTS, the AMC's, and AIME, as well as Speech and Debate in 2015.

Originating as a non-profit organization, 

Eat Pie has pursued one primary mission: 

to create a self-sustaining learning network, in which the community teaches the community and anybody can affect change, regardless of age. More than that, it seeks connection and building friendships. 

In 2013, Eat Pie sponsored its first summer internships for middle and high school students interested in teaching and mentoring. In 2015, the Institute is 

expanding to the humanities, hosting its first offerings in Speech and Debate as well as a novel course called Theory of Everything.


Applications for our Summer 2015 program are now open.

For information regarding summer classes or internships, please explore our Summer Program header above containing class descriptions and the insider's scoop on a day in Eat Pie

Students will be placed in classes by ability, not by grade. New students will receive a placement test in late April to early May to determine class placement.

Early Application Deadline:  March 24, 2015
