Clubs and Activities

Venango Catholic High School is committed to fostering the spiritual growth of students, faculty, and all members of the VC community.


Activity Periods

Activity Periods are used to allow students to experience something outside of regular classroom activities and to facilitate a time for those students who need a PE credit to participate in gym, fencing or walking for fitness. The activities are based on the interests of the teachers and at times even the student. We offer all kinds of things from photography to Science Olympiad.

The forty minute block is also a great time for students to seek out extra help from teachers and support staff, or to make up tests or quizzes that they may have missed due to absence.

Current activities include:

  • SAT Math Prep
  • Walking for Fitness
  • Gym
  • Study Hall
  • Literary Experience
  • Fencing
  • Science Olympiad
  • Academic Competition Team (Includes Math Competition and Academic Bowl Teams)
