Get Involved

Getting involved is a great way to show Vistamar students that the school community is committed to their education. Parents and alumni volunteers are essential to organizing events and ensuring our school’s success.
 
One of the best ways for parents to get involved is to take an active role in PAVE (Parent Alliance for Vistamar Education). There are a variety of volunteer opportunities for parents and alumni that fit different schedules and skill sets.
 
For more information on how you can get involved, please contact the Development Office at 310-643-7377. Or fill out the parent volunteer interest form.
