Welcome to the Portal to Apply for PVA!

While PVA is an auditioned program, there is a place for everyone with a passion for the arts.  All students who audition will be placed in either PVA or PVA Intro.

Some students with a newly discovered passion for the arts need time to develop foundational skills before they can find success in  enriched and rigorous studies.  PVA Intro allows such students the opportunity to come to Central and focus on this learning. Students enrolled in PVA Intro are welcome to re-audition for PVA after developing fundamental skills and confidence in artistic work.

PVA’s Application Deadline was on January 14th but there is still time.

Late applications will be considered but space is limited so please complete the four step application process below as soon as possible.
