CREST Shadow Program

The CREST Shadow program has ended for the 2018-19 school year. 

Our shadowing program allows prospective students to spend a full day on the PVHS campus with a CREST student. This will provide them the opportunity to meet many students and staff while experiencing a day in the life of a CREST student. They will also benefit from getting to know our campus, programs, and scheduling. Reservations need to be made a minimum one week in advance of the actual shadow day. 

  • Students should be prepared to fully participate in the day's activities. It will be fun!
  • Students should bring paper, pen, and lunch.
  • Students need to stay for the full day.
  • Students need to be currently enrolled 8th or 9th grade.
  • Tours are capped at two students per strand each day.
