Academics & Athletics Program

Mesa Academics & Athletics Program

Our student athletes know what it means to work hard and aim for excellence. MAAP is here to empower every Olympian to succeed in the classroom, the athletics arena, and in the community. Work with specialized athletics counselors to plan out your education, career, athletic, and personal goals and see what it takes to obtain your degree or certificate and/or prepare to transfer as a student athlete.

Welcome to the Team, Olympian!
