Shadow days begin in March after the lottery has occurred. Check page to this page in mid-March for the shadow day request form link.

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 school 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 around 4pm in the main office.
