PAFA Comes to You

The PAFA Office of Admissions understands that not all prospective students can meet with us in person here in Philadelphia. To meet the needs of as many potential students as possible, we travel around the country—and to Canada—each year to attend National Portfolio Days, Graduate Portfolio Days and NACAC Performing and Visual Arts Fairs. We also visit high schools and community colleges.
