VAFA Mission Statement: The Association is a non-profit corporation committed to enhancing and supporting the educational (both academic and extra-curricular) facilities, programs and opportunities in the Villisca community. An effective public school system and ancillary educational opportunities are vital to small-town life.

VAFA Vision Statement:
The Association envisions that it will, through the efforts of its volunteers:

1. Renew and facilitate regular communications and establish relationships with and among current and former students, faculty, administrators and staff of the Villisca schools;
2. Encourage and invigorate community spirit and involvement to aid the Villisca schools by enhancing a cooperative environment with the general public through communication and involvement;
3. Enrich the cultural and social environment of the Villisca community by implementing cultural and social events;
4. Promote and preserve the sense of community identity, history, and spirit of the Villisca schools through regular Association activities;
5. Augment the resources of the Villisca schools by providing structure for the donation of time, talent, and/or financial assistance;
6. Enhance the levels of achievement (academic and extra-curricular) in the Villisca schools by providing enrichment opportunities for students; and
7. Collaborate with officials of the public school system and other public and private organizations in the Villisca community to coordinate the efficient use of resources to achieve our mission.

We hope that the results of these efforts will:
1. Attract students to attend the Villisca schools;
2. Attract talented faculty and administrators to join the Villisca schools; and
3. Attract people to move to the Villisca community.
