South Coast Mensa is a diverse organization for individuals who score in the top 2% of the general population on a standardized intelligence test.
Our local chapter of American Mensa, Ltd. serves the South Coast area of Alabama and is a proud member of Region 5, which encompasses the southeast region of the United States.
As a member of our community, you will have access to a diverse range of individuals who share your intellectual curiosity and interests.
Mensa offers over 150 special interest groups (SIGs) for you to engage with and opportunities to attend local, national, and international events.
Our mission is to empower our members with the intellectual stimulation, social connection, leadership development, and community service opportunities they seek.
Did you know that over six million individuals in the US qualify for Mensa membership? However, most of these people are unaware of their eligibility and haven't considered joining the organization.
If you're interested in becoming a member of South Coast Mensa, there are two ways to do so:
1. Take the Mensa Admissions Test (if you're 14 years or older)
2. Provide evidence from nearly 200 other approved tests, including the WAIS, Cognitive Assessment System, the Miller Analogies Test, or the Stanford Binet.
To learn more about taking the Mensa Admissions Test, check out our testing schedule or contact our Testing Coordinator, Dr. Leslie C.-R., SCMensaProctor@yahoo.com.
