MSHP provides opportunities for Arizona residents from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in the fields of math and science to begin university-level instruction while still in high school. Two five-week sessions offer three college credits, and an eight-week course yields four credits. Pupils complete daily homework, take quizzes twice a week and take weekly tests. Faculty provide tutoring and problem-solving sessions in the evening, and a variety of academic presentations and activities are scheduled during each session. High school graduates may enroll only if they are preparing for freshman year at Arizona State.
