At the Virginia Junior Academy of Science we:
discover and encourage scientific aptitude among secondary school students (grades 7 through 12) in Virginia.
foster fellowship between its members and the members of the Virginia Academy of Science (VAS).
encourage students to continue their education in science, engineering and related fields.
develop a background among its members which will eventually lead to membership in the Virginia Academy of Science and other professional science organizations.
The Virginia Junior Academy of Science (VJAS) is directly sponsored by the Virginia Academy of Science (VAS). Both the VJAS and the VAS maintain an office in the Science Museum of Virginia, Richmond, Virginia.
