Shadow Days

Shadow days begin in March after the lottery has occurred and go until the end of May.

Please note: Unfortunately we have reached our capacity for shadow requests this spring.

Students who have applied for the 2019-20 school year are welcome to request a shadow day.

Students shadow a current PVPA student in the grade they have applied to attend. They will see what arts and academic classes look like, as well as observe the functioning of PVPA on a typical day.

For shadow days, we ask that guardians bring their child to the main office between 8:15 and 8:25 with a notebook, writing utensil, lunch and water bottle. School gets out Monday-Thursdays at 3:55pm as so we ask families to plan to pick up their child by 4pm in the main office.


More information regarding the scheduling of shadow days:

Once the Admissions Coordinator schedules a shadow day for your child, she will email you with the proposed date. Please respond in a timely manner once you are emailed so that she may re-accommodate if needed. Please allow UP TO THREE WEEKS for a response to your request. Due to demand and a limited schedule, we are not be able to meet every request. PVPA permits students to shadow ONCE per season.
