Each year, PCHS has numerous exciting events for all students!  Be sure to watch for announcements and posters advertising these and other happenings throughout the year:

  • An Evening with the Arts: Spend an evening with our Fine Arts Department touring the Providence Catholic student art show and enjoy the band and choir concerts.
  • Career Day: Career Day is an event that takes place every other year and is sponsored by our Advancement Office. Alumni, current Providence Catholic parents, parents of Providence Catholic alumni, community leaders and other friends of the school are invited to share their professional insights and personal stories with the student body. Typically, 40 or more speakers participate in each Career Day. The students sign up in advance for the presentations they wish to attend and are scheduled accordingly. 
  • Clothes, Food, Toy and Blood Drives: The Providence Catholic community comes together at various times of the year to collect items for local organizations and families in need. There are also two blood drives each school year.  These events are sponsored by the Augustinian Youth Ministry. 
  • Dances: Bring a date, come by yourself or with a group of friends, to our three major dances: Homecoming, Christmas and Sweetheart. Prom takes place in May for upperclassmen and is the only traditional couple dance at PCHS.
  • Dress Down & Spirit Days: Dress down for charity once each quarter for $1.00. The Student Council chooses the charities. Also, celebrate your Celtic pride throughout the school year by wearing Celtic apparel on Spirit Days!
