Regional Academy Programs

Regional Academy

The Regional Academy is an exceptional opportunity that allows high school students to explore post-secondary specialized programs of study in high demand career fields. Student cohorts from across the region meet daily on the VWCC campus to complete course work that meets the foundational requirements for degree programs often while completing a VWCC Career Studies Certificate or industry credentialing examinations. 
BCPS students currently participate in the Engineering, Interdisciplinary Science, and Health Science programs offered through VA Western's Regional Academy.
