    Late Applications Information/Requirements

    • In order to be considered for entrance into PVA, students must complete an application, be screened for academic eligibility, and successfully complete an audition.
    • Late applicants are considered based on seat availibilty within the individual Primes after the on time lottery occurs. Students who pass Callbacks or Late Auditions are offered a late waitlist seat in the order in which they apply after all on-time applicants have been offered seats. 
    • Late applicantions are open to students going into 6th, 7th, 9th and 10th grade. Applicants for 7th and 10th grade must meet a higher standard in order to be considered for placement in those Primes, as other students have had a year of previous experience with the Magnet level curriculum. Applicants for 10th gradee will be required to take certain 9th grade PVA courses in order to be prepared for other PVA requirements.
    • Students may only audition for a maximum of two Primes in a given academic year. If students auditioned for two Primes during the on time auditions, they are not permitted to apply to different Primes.
    • Students who express interest or move to the area outside of these application windows will only be considered if they are coming directly from an arts program that is deemed to be an equivalent level of the PVA Magent Program. If sufficient documentation is provided and accepted by PVA leadership and the Magnet Office, students will then have to complete an online application.
    • Once a student exits from the PVA Program, they are not permitted to re-enroll.
