The Technology Student Association (TSA) is a national organization of students engaged in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics).


I believe that Technology Education holds an important place in my life in the technical world. I believe there is a need for the development of good attitudes concerning work, tools, materials, experimentation, and processes of industry. Guided by my teachers, artisans from industry, and my own initiative, I will strive to do my best in making my school, community, state, and nation better places in which to live.

I will accept the responsibilities that are mine. I will accept the theories that are supported by proper evidence. I will explore on my own for safer, more effective methods of working and living. I will strive to develop a cooperative attitude and will exercise tact and respect for other individuals. Through the work of my hands and mind, I will express my ideas to the best of my ability. I will make it my goal to do better each day the task before me, and to be steadfast in my belief in my God, and my fellow Americans.


The Technology Student Association (TSA) aims to enhance personal development, leadership, and career opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), whereby members apply and integrate these concepts through intracurricular activities, competitions, and related programs.


TSA chapters take the study of STEM beyond the classroom and give students the chance to pursue academic challenges among friends with similar goals and interests. Together, TSA chapter members work on competitive events, learn and apply leadership skills, and may attend conferences at the state, regional, and national levels. TSA chapters also are committed to a national service project and are among the most service-oriented groups in the community. TSA members may become officers within their state and then run for national office. To learn how to start a TSA chapter, call 703-860-9000 or join TSA.

We are iLEAD . . . a community of innovative leaders who are exceptional, a² (ambitious and always team players), and determined to make a positive difference in the world.


  • Supporive Relationships - We will maintain a culture of acceptance for each member of the community, providing a supportive environment while expecting high standards of behavior and achievement.
  • Curriculum and Instruction - We will provide a standards-aligned curriculum and engaging instruction to assure students are college and career ready. We will assure each student engages in at least one STEM-based interdisciplinary project per year. Additionally, we will integrate work-based and real-world learning opportunities into all iLEAD classes.
  • Competitions - We will assure that each student participates in at least one iLEAD-sponsored STEM-related regional or state competition per year.
  • Enrichments & Extenstions - We will assure that each student has STEM-based enrichments and extensions:
    • -one visit to a STEM-based industry or STEM-based community agency each year,
    • -visits to KY public universities that offer STEM-pathway education over four years,
    • -multiple job-shadowing experiences in a business or service related to their STEM pathway(s) over four years.
  • Certifications - We will prepare each student to complete at least one STEM-related certification prior to graduation.


Ensuring rigorous, personalized STEM pathways so students graduate with versatility, college credit, and entry-level technical and soft skills, so they will be successful in tomorrow’s industries.

Theory of Change

If we provide students a supportive environment, rigorous STEM classes that include real-world projects, and work-based learning opportunities, then students will graduate with versatility, college credit, and entry-level technical and soft skills so they will be successful in tomorrow’s industries.
