Acronym for Pioneer Valley Performing Arts, PVPA is actually Pioneer Valley Performing Arts Charter Public High School. A middle school was added in 2004. The school is a gathering place for the young artists of the Pioneer Valley, including quite a few teens from Northampton
and the Springfield
area. The school has four main areas of concentration theatre, dance, music, and visual arts.
The school is currently located in Hadley, MA but is soon moving to South Hadley.
