1 Performing & Visual Arts Magnet High School Program

2 Welcome to PVA High School! Designed to provide a high quality education in and through the arts, the AACPS Performing and Visual Arts High School (PVA) is a four-year (grades 9-12) program designed for the serious artist interested in developing their full artistic potential as they prepare for post secondary institutions and career success. The PVA Magnet program gives students the opportunity to foster their artistic passions both in front of an audience and behind the scenes through premiere arts venues. From performances in dance, music, and theater, to hands-on stage management training, to producing exhibitions and literary publications, PVA students work to develop their artistic skill through realworld experiences.

3 Before we begin General Magnet Program Information All AACPS Magnet Programs Offer students a specialized course of study or an emphasis on instruction that is different from the traditional curriculum offered in AACPS. Are a key component of Anne Arundel County s vision for Programs of Choice. Attract qualified students from all areas of the county who complete an admission process. Are public school programs and do not involve any additional cost to attend. o Some programs may have lab, field trip, or exam fees. Provide transportation through regional consolidated bus stops. o Private transportation is required to and from the community bus stops. Most bus stops are located at local elementary schools, middle schools, or libraries.

4 What benefits does the PVA High School offer? An integrated arts curriculum that weaves the arts through all subjects; Studio/performance based instruction that fosters creative-critical thinking, student-centered inquiry, and effective communication; A problem solving/production environment that allows students to further their own individual aesthetic; Challenging academic coursework; The chance to work alongside regionally and internationally recognized professional artists; The opportunity to showcase artistic work and performances through partnerships with arts organizations and agencies; and Educational partnerships with arts colleges and institutes, such as the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) and the Peabody Institute.

8 Annapolis High School: An IB World School Annapolis High School (AHS) is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. As such, all AHS 9 th and 10 th grade students participate in the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP). The IB MYP whole-school program offers all students in grades 9 and 10 a teaching style focused on promoting 21 st century leaders who are able to: Communicate effectively in multiple languages, Connect what is learned in the classroom with the real world, and Develop an understanding of their place as an integrated part of both local and global communities. Annapolis High School also hosts the Magnet IB Diploma Programme (DP) for students in grades 11 and 12 who applied for and were accepted into the IB DP Magnet program. While PVA students are not a part of the Magnet IB DP, as members of the Annapolis High School community, all PVA students attending AHS are automatically also a part of the IB MYP whole-school program. In this school, students will experience the unique curriculum of the PVA program taught through the IB teaching methodology.

15 Applying to the PVA Program As with all AACPS Magnet Schools, students must complete an application process and be determined eligible for the PVA High School program. Students can apply to the PVA program in the fall of their 8 th or 9 th grade year.

16 The Magnet Application Process: The Application 1. Information Nights: Attend the PVA Information Night in the fall to visit the magnet school, meet the PVA facilitators and teachers, and learn more about the program. Visit the Magnet Website (www.aacps.org/magnet) for details on any upcoming Information Nights 2. The Application: Complete the online Magnet Application by the posted deadline. The Magnet Application opens in the fall and will remain open for approximately two months. The Magnet Application is posted at https://magnet.aacps.org. 3. The Audition: Sign-up for and complete an Audition. Information about the Audition is available on the PVA Website (www.aacps.org/pva). This information may vary from year to year.

17 The Magnet Application Process: Evaluation 4. Evaluation: The magnet office uses the following criteria to determine whether or not a student is eligible for PVA: a) 7 th and 8 th grade academic record b) MSA scores c) Audition scores Students may be eligible through one of two pathways These pathways are not a ranking system, but rather determine what the student will need to complete during the application process. Pathway I* Students must have: A minimum of a B average (3.0 grade average) in grade 7 Scores of Proficient or Advanced in MSA Reading and Mathematics in grade 7 or scores in the 60 percentile or above on nationally-normed tests in Reading and Mathematics An average rubric score of a 7 or better on the Audition

18 The Magnet Application Process: Evaluation (continued) Pathway II* Students must have: A minimum of a mid-c average (2.5 grade average) in grade 7 An average rubric score of a 7 or better on the Audition and an average rubric score of a 3 or better on the Academic Interview Scores of Proficient or Advanced in MSA Reading and Mathematics in grade 7 or scores in the 60 percentile or above on nationally-normed tests in Reading and Mathematics Two letters of recommendation from a recent teacher and a community member (teacher, coach, mentor, etc) *Please note that the only distinction between these two pathways is that students in Pathway II will complete an academic interview and will need letters of recommendation. Both Pathway I and Pathway II students are treated equally in the Lottery.

19 The Magnet Application Process: The Lottery and Registration 5. The Lottery: If there are less applicants than seats available for each Arts Majors, all eligible students will be offered seats. However, if there are more eligible applicants than seats available, a computerized, random Lottery will occur for those Arts Majors to place students either in the program or on a wait-list. It is the belief of the Magnet Office that a Lottery is the most fair way to all students to determine who is given a seat in a Magnet Program. Students placed on the wait-list will be offered a seat as space opens up in the program 6. Registration: Attend a the Welcome and Registration Night for information about the Enrollment process PVA Summer Bridge a summer experience for students to engage in focused arts experiences
