MESA stands for Math, Engineering and Science Achievement. The MESA School Program (MSP) supports pre-college students (mostly in middle and senior high schools) to excel in math and science and go on to college as majors in STEM fields. Advising and academic assistance is provided through a MESA advisor, usually a math or science teacher. Components of the MSP include development of individual academic plans to ensure timely completion of college preparatory classes, study skills training, local and regional competitions in hands-on activities, career and college exploration, and parent leadership development. MSP also offers professional development opportunities for math and science teachers to learn innovative approaches and hands-on activities that can be replicated in schools with limited resources.
