The mission of the NC State University North Carolina Mathematics and Science Education Network Pre-College Program (NCSU NC-MSEN PCP) is to prepare underserved students at the middle and high school levels (grades 6-12) for careers in education and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
The NCSU NC-MSEN Pre-College Program currently serves approximately 350 students in Bertie, Franklin, Granville, Johnston, Nash, Northampton, Wake, Warren Counties and Weldon City through year-round enrichment activities. The program partners with school districts to recruit students from underserved populations who have not been prepared to pursue college preparatory level mathematics and science-based courses. Students participate in exciting, uplifting and challenging activities throughout the school year.
A diverse group of master public school teachers and university staff comprise the staff that supplements the education provided in public schools. To participate in the program, area students must attend a partner school district.
