About the PTSA

Centreville High School's Parent-Teacher-Student Association (PTSA) is a nonprofit organization run by volunteers to provide valuable support, services, and programs to the CVHS community.  Since 1988, the PTSA has worked to promote the welfare of our students in our homes, school, and community.  Research shows that parents need to be partners in their children's education, from pre-school right up through the high school years.  At Centreville High School, the PTSA is working to serve as that essential link to keep you in touch and informed about our school.  Centreville High School's PTSA is a local unit of the National PTA and Virginia PTA and a member of the Fairfax County Council of PTAs.

Volunteer for the PTSA

Your time and energy are essential to the success of PTSA and CVHS.  In addition, volunteering is a great way to meet other parents and get more involved in our school.  Volunteers serve on committees and advisory groups, work in school offices, provide hospitality for school functions, get the PTSA newsletter out, sell ads for the student directory, organize special programs, chaperone student events, and more.  Volunteers are always needed for long-term, short-term, and one-time-only projects.  To make it easy to find volunteer opportunities that fit your interests and schedule, we send out regular emails with news of volunteer needs.  Remember, every PTSA volunteer is a busy parent, just like you.  To volunteer, please send an email to Robin Costanza at [email protected].

Support the PTSA

The PTSA relies on memberships and fundraising to fund its many programs and projects throughout the year.  Our "No-Fuss Fundraising" eliminates the fuss.  Send a check, take a tax deduction, and enjoy the knowledge that you're supporting many special activities that benefit our students, teachers, and school.  They deserve it!
