Shadow days begin in March after the lottery has occurred. Students who have applied for the 2018-19 school year are welcomed to request a shadow day. A link to a form to request a shadow day will appear on this page as we near March 2018.

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.
