Will this grow in zone 3? Thank you.. Do you know of any climbing vines that will grow in partial to full shade in zone 3?

Welcome! maraf to NGA!

According to our database... Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia)
Would be challenging. But if you scroll down to the comment section...Says from Canada to Fl. Maybe where you are it would suffer dieback, but roots would still survive?
Hopefully someone more familiar with your neck of the woods will come along soon.

The basic Virginia Creeper grows wild all over the place here in Ontario, Canada Zone 4a so it should be OK. I believe the Engelman version of it is a bit smaller in habit but it is advertised for sale as hardy to Zone 3.

This page from U of Illinois Extension lists some others hardy to Zone 3 and suggests their preferred growing conditions:
