Dear St. Vrain Valley Community,
Thank you for your outstanding support in championing the growth and development of St. Vrain Valley Schools into a nationally recognized center of excellence for student engagement and 21st-century learning. Your unwavering dedication to the well-being and success of our students, teachers, staff, and schools is a testament to the outstanding community in which we live.
The Math, Engineering, and Science Achievement (MESA) program has been the premier science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education program in the St. Vrain Valley School District since 2000.
MESA's unique mission is to encourage, motivate, support and prepare students for success in the pursuit of undergraduate degrees and careers in STEM.
MESA serves all District students but has a particular interest and focus on students from groups that are historically underrepresented in science, engineering, and other math based careers. MESA students in elementary, middle and high schools prepare for and explore these professions through collaborative projects focused on building math, science, technology, and communication skills.
The vision of MESA is to support the national science and mathematics educational agenda by ensuring that MESA students develop a high level of literacy in mathematics, science, and technology so they can play a leading role within an increasingly technology-based world.
