The Regional Academy is a program designed to grow the number of students entering the engineering and the health professions pipelines by reaching out to rising high school juniors and seniors with a strong aptitude for science and mathematics. The curriculum has been built by experienced faculty who come from various backgrounds with extensive curriculum development experience and technical knowledge.
In addition to programs in Engineering, Mechatronics and Health Sciences, Virginia Western is pleased to offer the Applied Interdisciplinary Sciences Career Studies Certificate beginning Fall 2018.
We invite you to look over the details of the program and look at the caliber of the work being done by our students. We created this web site to answer as many of your questions as possible and to assist students interested in applying. However, if you still have questions after you've looked around, please don't hesitate to contact us!
