Hazing Policy

All students should be aware of the Board of Education’s ‘Hazing’ policy as it pertains to initiation into an organization. “Hazing will not be permitted as a condition of membership in any group or organization connected with APS.  Hazing is defined as:

•To harass by exacting unnecessary, disagreeable or degrading tasks or activities which may result in harm or bodily injury to an individual

•To play abusive and humiliating tricks on an individual by a way of initiation.



Volcano Vista High School expects all students to 

SOAR - Safe - Organized - Achiever - Respectful.

When students SOAR, faculty and staff work to recognize, promote and reward these behaviors by giving students SOAR cards.   SOAR cards should be turned in weekly to any academy office.   After a full week of classes, the following Tuesday there will be a drawing from all SOAR cards turned in during that week.  Six (6) random SOAR cards will be drawn and various prizes will be given for the weekly winners.  Each semester, there is a grand-prize drawing from ALL cards turned in during the semester.  A matrix is on page 20 & 21 that gives examples of what it looks like to SOAR at Volcano Vista High
