The Virginia Association of Secondary School Principals (VASSP) was founded in 1906 and incorporated 1974 in the Commonwealth of Virginia. We are a IRS designated 501(c)(6) organization. Our mission statement is “to support school principals and assistant principals in providing leadership to their schools and communities for the purpose of improving the education of Virginia’s youth.” Our vision statement is “to be the Commonwealth’s foremost authority on school leadership for Virginia’s youth.”  VASSP, together with the Virginia Foundation for Educational Leadership, are proud sponsors of the nation’s oldest state PreK-12 student leadership organization – the Virginia Student Councils Association (founded in 1905).

You are invited to be a partner in our efforts. VASSP is a membership led organization. We rely on the dues payments of our principals and assistant principals, corporations and foundations.

Every gift is appreciated and makes a difference.
