CAMPUS – Vista del Lago High School opened in Folsom, Calif. in August 2007. Featuring a beautiful 50-acre campus, Vista has the capacity to accommodate 1,600 students. The school had its first graduating class in 2010 and currently offers comprehensive academic and athletic programs:
ACADEMICS – The school offers Honors/Advanced Placement courses, engineering program, music program and special education. Courses are taught in four instructional buildings. Plus, students can take advantage of a computer lab, library, theater and student union.
SPORTS – Vista sponsors 21 boys and girls sports. More than half of the students at the school participate in at least one sport. Student sports facilities include a football stadium with an all-weather track and synthetic grass field, two gymnasiums, a competition-level swimming pool, soccer field, two baseball and softball fields, and eight tennis courts.
Some funding for Vista athletics comes from the Folsom Cordova Unified School District. However, this funding doesn’t fully cover the expenses involved in running a complete sports program.
That’s where the Vista Athletic Boosters comes in.
We formed our organization so that Vista athletic teams may hold fundraising activities for their teams — to help pay for expenses such as coaching stipends, sports equipment, summer programs, athletic trainers, non-league tournaments, team banquets/awards, and other sports-related activities that are not covered by school district funds.
Several Vista sports teams also host camps for younger athletes in the Folsom area to raise funds, improve skills and promote awareness of Vista del Lago High School. By working together, our school can get the funds it needs to support top-notch programs.
There are many different initiatives the Vista Athletic Boosters have championed through the years. Below you will find some documents showcasing the highlights from various school years:
