As a public charter school in Hawaiʻi, VSAS is funded primarily by the state. However, this funding is not sufficient and we rely on fundraising to implement a high quality educational program. Fundraising needs include curriculum materials, technology, musical instruments, art supplies, enrichment classes, Healthy Food Program, Green Team, and school bus service.  

Currently, our primary fundraising goal is for the construction of a new campus,  located at the Keakealani site on Haunani Road. 


At VSAS, we have numerous opportunities for parent and community volunteers to get involved during the school day, at special evening or weekend events, or even from home. Some volunteer opportunities include classroom teacher assistance, campus maintenance and beautification, supporting green initiatives and waste diversion, assisting with fundraising events, grant writing, volunteering for the Cooper Center, serving on the Governing Board or Friends of VSAS board, organizing in the school library, teaching an after-school enrichment class, chaperoning for field trips, helping with special events such as the Book Fair and family nights, and assisting with art programs such as the Spring Musical and Middle School Theater program. 


The Volcano School of Arts & Sciences, PCS requires a minimum of four hours of volunteer service for our school per family per year.  


We track volunteer hours to include in grant applications and reports of school performance. Please use the VSAS Volunteer Form to report your hours. Completed forms may be turned into the school office.
