Mission Statement:


To create opportunities for educationally disadvantaged students, especially those from groups with low participation rates in college, to prepare for and enter professions requiring degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).


Vision of SDSU MESA Schools Program (MSP):


Our vision is to provide a rigorous and enriching academic program that encourages and fosters a college-going culture among educationally disadvantaged students in the San Diego area and opens the door for careers in STEM, both locally and beyond.  Through a core STEM curriculum, college preparation seminars, parent outreach, and various mentoring opportunities, students will be competitively eligible for admission to top colleges and universities; MESA students will possess the academic, social, and cultural capital needed to succeed at all levels.
