PVPA is a regional public charter school serving 400 students grades 7-12, from over 60 towns throughout Western Massachusetts. We seek to connect the creative process with critical thinking to inspire a love of learning. As a charter school, the work we do informs educational policy at local, state and national levels.
The guidance department works as a team to address the social, emotional and academic needs of students. Our goal is to enhance students’ self-image, self-knowledge, problem solving and decision making skills; to help them become more successful lifelong learners; and be better prepared to meet the demands of a changing world. We help students expand their knowledge of the opportunities and resources available to them in their school and communities, in college and in the workforce.
Guidance works with all students at PVPA to help them plan and register for classes. We offer academic, social and emotional counseling individually and in groups when appropriate. We offer college and career guidance, and information on SAT & ACT testing and financial aid.
College rep visits, college fairs, and other college meetings are posted on the college calendar.
We love working with PVPA students. Please email us or call with any questions or concerns.
