Mission Statement

The Silicon Valley Tech Academy is an educational program to enable Middle and High School students to explore and improve skills needed to pursue college-level work in the fields of engineering, technology, and science. The program focuses on teamwork, innovative problem solving, and project-based "learning by doing" with emphasis on Space and High Tech, Energy, Water, and the Environment. Silicon Valley Tech Academy is in partnership with San Jose State University College of Engineering and Downtown College Prep Alum Rock High School.

Description

Founder and director of the original Tech Academy, the late Dr. Jay Pinson envisioned the program as a way to inspire youth about careers in the fields of engineering and science and to enlighten them on their need to excel in math and similar disciplines while progressing from middle school through high school.

He determined that the Tech Academy needed a high-powered, relevant curriculum, and a commitment to excellence. He encouraged learning through hands-on, collaborative problem-solving.

San Jose State University's Science, Technology, Engineering & Math Program (STEM) Program is named after Dr. Pinson, in honor of his work.

The Silicon Valley Tech Academy's directors and staff aim to preserve and grow his legacy
