My experience at Mercedes Early College Academy has been very uplifting. Being given the chance to be in a school where other students-like me- aspire to achieve their goals and to continue their education has helped keep me in track. MECA has a wonderful staff that have helped encourage me, and have reminded me to remain stress-free when my studies became difficult. The ONLY thing I would ask of MECA to chance, is their policy regarding student internships. I'd ask them to help make it become an easier process.

This school is unique because every student who attends has the chance to graduate with their associates degree in their choice of field. I would go to this high school all over again if needed because it feels like home, help is always available and students are constantly being encouraged to strive for excellence. My favorite experiences are trips and extra curricular activities and events that were hosted and planned out by the teachers and students together.
It was a wonderful experience. My daughter was given the opportunity to receive her associates and was well prepared for college and life. The teachers were very caring and the counselor was supportive with students and parents. The counselor did great with meeting with all students every semester to advise them. Students were made aware of what their schedule would be and what was needed in order to complete their degrees.
