Health Science and Technology Academy students are participating in the academy's annual college fair at West Virginia University.
Second year students in the program met with representatives from several West Virginia schools Tuesday.
HSTA is a four year program for students pursuing a career in healthcare.
"Our main goal is to not only help the students get into college and be successful in college, but to then bring back these skills into smaller rural West Virginia," said Kasandra Kasten from HSTA.
The four year program is for student in rural counties, lower income families, and for first generation college students.
After successful completion of HSAT, students receive a tuition waiver for any West Virginia State school.
