Math & Science Center

Berrien RESA Mathematics and Science Center has been inspiring high school students in math, science and tech since 1991. The program sends up to 30 students per grade (9-12) to Andrews University in Berrien Springs for half of each school day.

Our accelerated curriculum includes 4 years of science and math, plus 2 years of computer science. Students get hands-on experience through projects, field trips, and electives at Andrews University.

Juniors and seniors can even take college courses for credit as well as semester-long scientific internships, where you'll work with top professionals in your field of interest.

Former students have explored careers in medicine, computer science, biology, and more!

It’s ALL worth it!! I don’t regret joining this program at all. I actually looked forward to coming to MSC more than going to my regular high school. I loved how I was given the opportunity to experience college-level courses in high school.

Yes, it is 100% worth it! The field trips and extra opportunities alone make it worth the extra work. Add that to the lifelong friends, the teachers, and the fun experiences, it makes the extra work so worth it. Thank you for making this program so much fun over the years. It has been the highlight of every school day I have had in high school.

MSC ends up being much more than you bargain for, in the good and the bad. You enter the program with a general idea that you'll have in increase in workload and get to meet some new kids. Yet, after 4 years of being in the program, you realize there's so much more. Sure, the work was a bit much at first, but you adjust quickly and when you do, the courses are alright. As far as friends and peers go, I would have never imagined that I would grow as close as I have to these guys. Tonya says from the beginning that this eventually happens to all the classes, but you find it absurd until it happens to you. I think that every moment I spent here, from pre-test cramming to the all-nighters, was 100% worth it. I really could not imagine my high school experience without MSC.

It is DEFINITELY worth it. I feel very prepared for college and was excellently prepared for the SAT. I was also asked about MSC in interviews for top schools. Overall, I loved the research opportunities the most. Andrews is awesome, and you don’t realize how fast it will go by. I saw freshman getting on the bus to go home and I was jealous because I wanted to have three more years left.

Amazing opportunity to connect with people outside of your school and an amazing opportunity to learn at a higher level. Not as much extra work as you'd think. The workload is manageable. My life would be entirely different without MSC. I wouldn't have the friends or aspirations that I do now.
