The Perkiomen Valley School District (PVSD) is a school district based in central Montgomery County, Pennsylvania (USA). It serves the boroughs of Collegeville, Trappe, and Schwenksville, and the townships of Lower Frederick, Perkiomen, and Skippack in Pennsylvania.

The district's mascot is the Viking.


The Perkiomen Valley School District was formed in 1969 through the merger of the Perkiomen Joint School District and the Schwenksville Union School District. Perkiomen Joint School District was, itself, a consolidation of Collegeville, Trappe, and Skippack Township (served by the former Collegeville-Trappe High School), while Schwenksville Union School District had unified Schwenksville, Lower Frederick Township, and Perkiomen Township (served by the former Schwenksville High School).

The mascot its colors of orange and brown, were elected by the students in the spring of 1969, after the merger was announced. Perkiomen Valley High School, then housed in the Collegeville-Trappe High School building, and the former Perkiomen Valley Junior High School, housed at Schwenksville High School, opened that fall.

The original superintendent was the late Dr. U. Berkley Ellis, Jr.
