Panther for a Day

Being a Panther starts with one day, but it lasts for a lifetime.
Our Panther for a Day program allows current 8th grade students (rising Freshmen) and transfer students to shadow a PVI student and discover what it’s like to attend Paul VI. We have opened up additional dates for our Panther for a Day program through April. Please schedule a Panther for a Day visit by doing the following:

Complete this form to share details about your student's interests so we can make the best pairing with a PVI student for them to shadow. Once the form is completed you will see a link to schedule your student to be a Panther for a Day. The email address you use to sign up with will be the same address we send reminders to. 

If your family is interested in a tour of our campus, you can schedule a student-led tour as a family.

We look forward to welcoming you to PVI! Until you visit us in person, get a sneak peek of PVI.

Mrs. Eileen Hanley, Director of Admissions and Student Life, 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!
