Tucson's Vocational Charter High School
Pima Vocational High School (PVHS) is a public charter school that welcomes youth ages 16 to 21 who want to meet Arizona State requirements for a high school diploma and obtain a sustainable job through career oriented work experience in an applied academic setting. Our program targets students who have previously dropped out of school or are at risk of not completing high school and provides on-site supportive social services to enable the students to take responsibility for their own education, career and life choices. Our comprehensive programs are provided within a small school learning community utilizing best practices for reconnecting out-of-school youth.
“The small community-like atmosphere helped me keep my focus on attaining my high school diploma. The staff, especially, kept an eye on everyone’s individual progress and took the time to make sure we were doing what we needed to do in order to meet our goals. I went through several personal family problems; one in particular left me without the means of getting to school or having a roof over my head. PVHS was able to help get me in contact with Youth On Their Own, and I was able to continue to make school my number one priority.”
