The students, who must meet all of the Arizona Essential Skills requirements to graduate, take courses on resume writing and career skills and can earn paid job placements and internships. In addition, students meet weekly with an advisor and attend classes with 15 or fewer students.

    In addition to its downtown campus, PVHS also offers classes at 5025 W. Ina Road in northwest Tucson.
