Middle and High School Signature Programs: Which Program Is the Best Fit?

For every dream, PVSchools provides a path to help your child get there. Our middle schools and high schools boast a wide, diverse line-up of Signature Programs to help students gain knowledge, skills, and experience toward their unique academic interests and career aspirations.

To help match your middle schooler or high schooler with a Signature Program within our district, we have developed a pair of explorative, interactive quizzes for you to use. Start by going to either the Middle School or the High School Selection Quiz, choose the group of activities that appeal most to your child, and then find out which Signature Program(s) cater to those interests.

When you are finished, you're encouraged to contact the school for more information or to start applying either open enrollment or traditional enrollment. Thank you for your interest in PVSchools!

More Info on Open Enrollment

If your home is outside of PVSchools boundaries or if you are outside of the school boundary that has the Signature Program you would like to apply for (view school boundaries), then you are eligible for the open enrollment process. Open enrollment is available to all Arizona-based students.

More Info on Traditional Enrollment

If your home is already located within the boundary of the school (view school boundaries) that has the Signature Program that best caters to your child, you can either 1) contact the school and inquire about the program if your child is already enrolled in the district, or 2) move forward with the traditional enrollment process.
