The Vulcan Science Academy was an educational institute located on Vulcan.

T'Pol's mother, T'Les, was an instructor at the Vulcan Science Academy until 2154, when she was asked to resign. (ENT: "Home")

In the mid-2150s, the Vulcan Science Academy was skeptical on the issue of time travel. (ENT: "Awakening")

The Vulcan Science Academy also spent a deal of time studying sub-quantum transporting but had little success. Earth's expert on transporters, Emory Erickson had been trying to get his hands on some of the Science Academy's research for years to no avail, but later claimed that it was probably just as well, as it might have sent him down the wrong path. (ENT: "Daedalus")

In 2249, Spock decided to join Starfleet rather than attend the Vulcan Science Academy, against the wishes of his father, Sarek. His decision was motivated by the realization that he would never be seen as an equal by the staff, only as someone who had "overcome the handicap" of half-human parentage. (TOS: "Journey to Babel"; Star Trek)

The novelization of the film suggests that, after declining acceptance, Spock salutes the council with a "distinctly Human digital gesture" unfamiliar to them - a raised middle finger - before walking out.

Prior to the sealing of the ruins in the mid-23rd century, the VSA excavated archeological sites on Tagus III. The Jacobson Excavation recovered artifacts from the Post-Ramirez Era and Sepulveda Period. (TNG: "Qpid")

From 2354 to 2369, the director of the Vulcan Science Academy was Dr. T'Pan. (TNG: "Suspicions")

In 2387 the Vulcan Science Academy commissioned the Jellyfish. (Star Trek)

Information on the VSA's activities on Tagus III is from an Okudagram titled, Tagus III Archaeological Notes, which was perused by Captain Jean-Luc Picard in 2367.
