CREST Shadow Program

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. Students 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. 

  • Please be prepared to fully participate in the day's activities. It will be fun!

  • Please bring writing tools, paper, and lunch.

  • Please plan to spend the full day at PVHS, arrival time in PVHS Reception at 7:15, pick up is 2:10.

  • Please be currently enrolled 8th or 9th grade. We do not permit 7th grade student to Shadow.

  • Tours are capped at two students per strand each day.

  • Please register for one strand per Shadow day. If you wish to experience a second strand, please register for a second day.

  • Teachers will contact families approximately one week prior to the Shadow date to re-confirm the Shadow.
