WHAT'S BEING SAID
We are providing our students with the tools and resources necessary to succeed in a 21st century highly-specialized, technology-oriented economy.”

"[Opt4STEM] is something that really makes my senior year memorable as I continue growing as a student."
-Ehlimana Gutosic, Von Student Class of 2016
"I think that's what makes Opt4STEM so different from other science programs. It's not too classroom or textbook orientated and everything is hands on. At any moment you have freedom to ask questions."
