    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 and 7th grade. Auditions will be offered on a case by case basis, depending on seat availibility for that year. 6th grade students who are auditioning for PVA admission in 7th grade will be held to the standards expected of a 7th grade student. Applications for the program will only be considered during the advertised windows and are not considered after 7th grade. 
    • 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.
