MASA is a program that provides high achieving and gifted students a comfortable and safe environment where they receive an education that excels in Math, Arts, and Science. Students will have opportunities through hands-on activities and inquiry based instruction to explore, comprehend, analyze, discover, and evaluate concepts while motivating one another. MASA nurtures the unique needs of every student while encouraging the development of our future scientists, mathematicians, writers, and thinkers to delve deeper and reach their true potential.
The organization provides an environment where high achieving and gifted students can challenge themselves and exercise their critical thinking skills to help them develop their intellect, use higher cognitive skills to create and to invent. At MASA, students are not given step by step instructions. Instead, they are encouraged to explore and investigate on their own so that they learn to be problem solvers and overcome the fear of being wrong.
MASA offers two programs throughout the year for students in grades Kindergarten through 8th grade. The Saturday programs are held once a month from September till May and summer camps are in June and July. These programs are held in various locations in Florida. MASA also provides parents and care givers the opportunity to share parenting experiences with each other through our parent workshops and forum.

MASA is one of the best programs we have found that not only teaches our children, but inspires them. They come home from their Saturday classes energized in a way that I rarely see. Forget that they are destigmatizing the STEM curriculum, they are offering a chance for the children to have fun, make friends and learn how to do amazing things. I love MASA and I'm so happy to watch the program get more and more amazing students. For so many of these children, it's hard to be the "smart kid" during the week. But at MASA, they are just part of a group of children like them. I'm grateful I found the program! My only complaint is that they haven't started a full time elementary charter!!
