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.

The schedule will resume during the 2023-24 school year. 

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

On the Day of Your Visit:

  • Dress in church-appropriate clothing (no jeans, leggings, shorts, or sneakers) or your school uniform, if coming from another diocesan school.
  • Arrive between 7:30-7:40 a.m. (Parents, you may park in the visitor spaces in the front of the school.)
  • Please sign in at the Main Office.
  • A PVI Student Ambassador will escort the Panther for a Day to our Admissions and Student Life Office, where they will meet their host. If you know a current Panther, you can request them to host, or we are happy to choose from one of our many Student Ambassadors.
  • Pick up is at the Main Office at 2:50 p.m.
  • We will treat your son/daughter to lunch in our Dining Commons.
