2021-2022 Course Catalog
The PVPA Course Catalogs describe each of the courses offered during the school year (a web-version of the catalog is also available). Introductory pages of each catalog outline requirements and typical course sequences, links to audition/interview applications, and links to online forms where students select their electives. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our catalogs provide information about shifts to our programs and courses that may occur depending on remote, blended, or in-person learning environments.
Curriculum maps are detailed breakdowns of each course we offer. Each map outlines the learning objectives for a course, including connections to state and/or national standards. Additionally, an overview of each unit is included.
