VASS Partners with Schools
Virginia Advanced Study Strategies, Inc. (VASS) was founded in 2007 as a non-profit organization to implement a STEM-focused Advanced Placement (AP) program funded by the National Math & Science Initiative and strategic partners. During the six-year project period, VASS provided extensive teacher training and student supports to achieve dramatic increases in enrollment and AP exam scores in over 75 Virginia schools. VASS is now in the fourth year of a U.S. Department of Education Investing in Innovation (i3) grant project which supports the practical application of math concepts in real world scenarios, integration of technology into homework assignments, and community and family involvement that leads to the academic success of the students served. VASS is uniquely prepared to provide the following college and career preparation services to Virginia’s school divisions.
