The Math and Science College Prep (MSCP) High School facility at 3200 Adams Blvd. was financed with ExED and LIIF NMTCs in May 2016, provides 550 permanent charter school seats in the West Adams neighborhood of South Los Angeles. MSCP provides students with a high quality secondary education, focused on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), and a goal of sending all graduates to college.
MSCP is one of two charter schools-the other being Crown Preparatory Academy Middle School, located just a few blocks away-in the newly formed STEM Preparatory Schools network which is committed to disrupting the status quo of inequitable access to high quality STEM pathways for women and minorities by cultivating a family of students and staff who solve problems through collaboration, innovation, passion, and perseverance.
While first started just three years ago, in 2013-14, on a traditional school district campus, MSCP has already been awarded the 2015 California Gold Ribbon School Award for putting forth an exemplary effort to ensure that every student is ready for 21st century college and careers. MSCP’s new home-purchased from Pacific Charter School Development Development-includes 24 classrooms, a college counseling center, meeting rooms, and a newly renovated historic church sanctuary which has been converted into a large multi-purpose room – all on a 1.77-acre parcel.
