The National Student Academy is a not-for-profit public educational organization for gifted high school students in Lithuania, created in 2004. Its aims are to foster the students’ subject-specific interests, encourage their personal development, and to even out the regional differences in the school curriculum. This is achieved through both continuous distance learning and residential events, which take place three times a year and include both subject-specific lectures and cross-disciplinary personal development sessions. There are nine subject sections: biochemistry, chemistry, IT, economics, Lithuanian philology, mathematics, music, and physics and astronomy. Around 250 students are currently members of the Academy.
