Mission / Vision

San Jose State University MESA Schools Program provides students with hands-on, real-world opportunities to engage students and help them explore opportunities in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). By working in junior high and high school within Santa Clara County, MESA prepares and motivates educationally disadvantaged and first-generation college bound students to successfully pursue college-preparatory coursework and promote careers in STEM.

Through MESA, students develop academic and leadership skills, increase educational performance, and gain confidence in their ability to compete professionally. MESA provides a unique combination of enrichment activities, hands-on competitions, academic support, industry involvement and a supportive community environment. MESA is nationally recognized for its innovative and effective academic development program for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

Unleashing Student Potential

San Jose State University MESA Schools Program provides students with hands-on, engaging opportunities to explore the areas of math, science and engineering. By serving elementary, junior high and high schools in San Jose area, we prepare and motivate educationally disadvantaged students to successfully pursue college-preparatory coursework and promote careers in math and science.

Through MESA, students develop academic and leadership skills, increase educational performance, and gain confidence in their ability to compete professionally. California MESA serves more than 20,000 California pre-college, community college and university students who are educationally disadvantaged. This awarding winning model has an outstanding success rate:

  • 74 percent of MESA high school graduates statewide went directly to four-year institutions after graduation compared to 36 percent of all California graduates
  • 60 percent of MESA students go on as math, science or engineering majors. 100% of the MESA community college students who transfer to four-year institutions major in math-based fields.
  • One year later, 90 percent of these students are persisting in these majors
