Each of us cares deeply about our children and their future. The Health Sciences and Technology Academy (HSTA) vision was founded in 1994 on the faith, resilience, spirit and commitment of individuals, communities and universities throughout the state. HSTA is a 9th-12th grade math and science enrichment program built in West Virginia by West Virginians for West Virginians which encourages aspirations, opens doors, and empowers minority and underrepresented students and communities. This partnership brings students and teachers to campuses each summer for laboratory and classroom training and activities. The partnership then provides the infrastructure and support for community-based science projects mentored by scientists, teachers, health professions, students and volunteer community leaders during the school year. Through HSTA, our students and alumni are building a better tomorrow by improving our education, our lifestyles, our health literacy and our communities today.
