MESA Schools Program (MSP) Centers

The MSP assists students at middle and senior high schools (and some elementary schools) so they excel in math and science and become competitively eligible for academically rigorous colleges and universities. The MSP partners with teachers, administrators, school district officials, schools and industry representatives to provide quality academic enrichment. Student selection and services are implemented through a collaboration involving teachers at participating schools and personnel from local MESA centers.

MESA programs operate from centers at Colleges, Universities, and Community sites throughout the State. For more information please select the centers below.
