2024 - 2025 School Year

Winchester STARBASE Academy Summer 2024


We have had a fabulous school year, thank you to all the schools and students that participated in our STEM program. We look forward to a busy summer: "Alumni Camp" for rising 6th graders, STEAM activities at the Handley Library, National Guard Youth Camp in Virginia Beach, reading with children at the Kids Clubs, and a high school JROTC Sphero Blueprint Computer-Aided Design and Building program.




To expose our nation's youth to the technological environments and positive civilian and military role models found on Active, Guard, and Reserve military bases and installations, nurture a winning network of collaborators, and build mutual loyalty within our communities, by providing 25 hours of exemplary hands-on instruction and activities that meet or exceed the National Standards.


To be the premier Department of Defense youth outreach program for raising the interest in learning and improving the knowledge and skills of our nation's at risk youth so that we may develop a highly educated and skilled American workforce who can meet the advance technological requirements of the Department of Defense.
