Student Life

Clubs and Activities

With over 70 different clubs, honor societies, and activities, PVI students have every opportunity to become the confident, well-rounded leaders they are called to be.
Whether it’s caring for their soul, sharpening their intellect, developing a talent, or serving others, PVI students Grow in Grace and Wisdom beyond the school day by participating in an array of activities and clubs. The numerous extra-curricular activities that exist at Paul VI have been created by students to meet the needs and interests of our diverse student population.
