MESA is a program of the University of Southern California (under contract with the University of California) that serves educationally disadvantaged students and, to the extent possible by law, emphasizes participation by students from groups with low rates of eligibility for four-year colleges. MESA provides a pipeline of academic services from elementary through university level to increase the number of these students who graduate with degrees in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The USC MESA program serves its students with innovative academic, college and career counseling and hands-on science programs, which are great opportunities to compete, show off and meet new friends.
For the school year 2019-2020 meeting time is once per month on selected Mondays from 3:10 PM to 4:10 PM in room 304.
MESA High School Students
A full range of services are offered to MESA high school students to help them become competitively eligible to the university or college of their choice and major in math and science-based fields. Through academic support, career exploration, counseling support, hands-on math and science competitions, and leadership training, students are prepared for the rigors of a college education.
