The Mezzo Academy, designed for students in grades 6-8, provides once-a-week tutoring, weekly educational workshops, family activities, and overall academic support. Students can also apply for a two-week summer academic enrichment program. Mezzo participants form the foundation of the Help Yourself Programs. Their energy, enthusiasm, respect, and sense of exploration are inspirational to student staff and Pre-Collegiate participants. An emphasis on experiential learning and holistic enrichment typify Mezzo programming.
