Our Mission Statement:
The Albemarle County Public Schools Math, Engineering & Science Academy aims to educate a cross-section of students with a variety of interests and strengths, to infuse traditional school curricula with real world problem-solving, collaboration and inquiry-based learning, and to prepare the engineers, researchers, inventors and entrepreneurs of the 21st century.
Applications for the 2019-20 school year can be found in the Academy Applications section.
Applications are due January 25th, 2019. Mailed applications must be post marked by January 25th. We are currently no longer accepting applications for rising freshmen for the 2019-20 school year.
Students will hear back from the academies at about 5:00 PM on March 1, 2019, via email.
MESA's Open Houses are on Wednesday, November 7th, 2018, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM and Thursday, December 6th, 2018, from 5:00 to 7:00 PM. At the Open House, guests can walk freely among the MESA rooms and talk with current MESA students about their experiences in the program and some of the projects they have worked on. Staff will also be on present to answer any questions.
