August 14th Graduation

After surveying our graduates regarding our graduation ceremony, we are going to continue as planned with a graduation celebration on August 14th. Though we will most likely not be able to have a traditional ceremony at the pavilion on this date, we will do something formal and creative to showcase and celebrate our graduates.

Graduates, we want to personalize a clothing item made just for our graduates, designed by our own Lily!

Complete this form so we can send you a customized Vista clothing item only for our graduates. Each graduate will be sent one customized item and a senior, short sleeve t-shirt at no cost from Vista. If you would like additional items we can customize clothing items but you will need to provide the item.

Next School Year

  • Currently, we are not 100% certain what next year will look like based on evolving state health requirements for schools reopening.

  • We will continue to communicate with students/families/community into the summer as things evolve.

  • We are preparing a variety of plans to support our students.

  • Vista will continue to pioneer a student-centered and individualized instructional approach which will have both face-to-face and remote/work from home components. We will call this our blended approach.

  • Some structures and staff will be changing next year in order for us to achieve this.

  • Vista will look a little different next year but one thing that will not change is our committment to our students' health and academic success.
