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.

We are so thrilled we discovered MASA summer camps! My son attends summer camps every summer. MASA, by far, are the most stimulating, fun and educational of any camp we have encountered. Last summer, my son came home every day with exciting information he couldn't wait to share about the projects he had engineered with fellow classmates. Each day, he could not wait to return the following day. If MASA was the only camp my son had the opportunity to attend in the summer, he has said over and over that he would definitely choose it over other camps. Most schools lack today in their science program. Luckily, my son has had the opportunity to be a part of a good science program; however, the MASA Science camp my son attended last summer would compensate almost a year's worth of science in most schools. We are so thankful to have discovered MASA. My son can't wait to go back this summer!
