Campus Life

Paul VI Experience

Pride. Values. Integrity. These are the words Paul VI students live by.
You can see those ideals reflected in our hallways every day, as well as manifested in over 60 active clubs and activities in which our students take part. At PVI, each student has the chance to pursue a passion, develop a creative talent, and find his or her niche in our dynamic community.
Through everyday life on campus, PVI challenges our students to become scholars, to grow into confident leaders, and, most importantly, to be good people. It’s all part of their journey to Be Extraordinary.
