Panther for a Day

Being a Panther starts with one day, but it lasts for a lifetime.
Panther for a Day visits will begin in late September.  This is a great opportunity for your child to shadow a student and discover what it’s like to be a Panther for a day. If you are interested in scheduling a date for a visit, please complete this form. We will follow-up to learn more information in order to pair them with a PVI student to shadow. 

Until you visit us in person, get a sneak peek of PVI.

Mrs. Eileen Hanley is available to speak with new or prospective families at 703-352-0925 x1251 or by email at

We look forward to hearing from you!
