Seventeen students at Madison Academy participated in the 66th annual American Mathematics Contest 12 and the 16th annual American Mathematics Contest 10.  The contests were held on Tuesday, February 3, 2015. The students competed for local, regional and national student and school awards.  The contest, which covers high school mathematics, is given in participating schools.

This year the winners are based on unofficial results as announced by Mr. Wayne Mosher for the 9th-10th grade test: 1st-Mike Downs, 2nd-Rachel Hudgens, 3rd-Cody Tishaw.  For the 11th-12th grade test: 1st-James Park, 2nd-Ashley Gonzalez and 3rd-Nathan Johnson.
