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 Friends of PVPA was founded in 2004 to provide the resources necessary to help PVPA in fulfilling its academic and performing arts missions. The Friends serve as the primary fundraising organization for PVPA to support the annual budget needs for all of PVPA's programs as well as special projects.
In December 2005 - with the generous assistance of hundreds of loyal supporters of PVPA - The Friends completed the purchase of PVPA’s campus and facilities in South Hadley.
